Skopje ready to host European Wildwater Champs


The 2017 European Wildwater Canoeing Championships begin next week in Skopje, Macedonia, in what is set to be one of the most hotly contested events in recent history.

Many of the sprint athletes competing this week had the chance to test the Treska River course in the scenic Matka Canyon at the season-opening World Cup last month, while the Classic race will be contested on the River Vardar in the heart of the city of Skopje.

It will be a grand return as a host of top-level events for Skopje, which hosted the 2004 European Senior Slalom Championships, and the European Junior and U23 Slalom Championships in 2014.

There will be men’s and women’s K1, C1 and C2 races, as well as team events in all disciplines.

The event begins May 11 and runs through until May 14. More information can be found at the event’s official website.
