The European Canoe Championships are coming to Duisburg next year
Duisburg will host the 21st European Canoe Championships. This was confirmed by the European Association (ECA) this week. The ECA has now announced the official date: 04.06 to 06.06 2021. The organizer will be the German Canoe Association. As usual, the local organization is carried out by the Canoe Regatta Club Duisburg (KRV). After the U23 rowing championship in early September, the track in the sports park will again be the venue for a high-ranking continental championship next year.
Jürgen Joachim, President of the KRV, is pleased about the promise to bring the European Canoe Championships to the course in Duisburg: “It was sad that we had to cancel the World Cup, the Olympic qualification and the Para World Championships this year due to the corona pandemic. It makes us all happy that we can once again present ourselves on the international stage with the European Championship.”Before the Olympic Games in Tokyo, we can offer great canoeing in Duisburg.
Jürgen Joachim thanked President Thomas Konietzko for his efforts to coordinate the details for the regatta with the ECA in 2021. The European Championships also offer the opportunity to start another canoe title fight.
