Greetings to participants in the Canoe Sprint World Championship

August 6, 2014

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to all taking part in the Canoe Sprint World Championship, which Russia is hosting for the first time on August 6–10.

The President said, in particular, in his message:

“The Krylatskoye Olympic Rowing Canal in Moscow is throwing a wide welcome today to the world’s top athletes. Ahead, you have a fierce and thrilling battle for new records and medals as you defend the honour of your countries’ national federations.

I am sure that the competition will be a vivid and memorable celebration for all spectators and competitors and will give everyone unforgettable moments of joy and triumph.”
