Flooding at slalom World Championship venue
ICF statement in response to the recent floods at the 2013 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championship venue in Prague.
Simon Toulson, ICF General Secretary, said:
"We are waiting for further reports on the venue once the waters have subsidded. Then we can assess the damage and the impact on the World Championships. The local organisers have assured us that they will do everything within their power to ensure that the event will go ahead. They have also been promised additional support from the Government and city of Prague.”
“In the event that the Championships are not held suitable contingency plans are being made, hopefully these will not need to be activated.“
The event is scheduled for the 11th -15th September 2013.
