Thessaloniki Gets 2014 World Rowing Games

kajgThe port city of Thessaloniki will be organizing and hosting one of the most important and prestigious sports events in October 2014,  winning the 2014 World Coastal Rowing Championships.
The decision came from the World Rowing Federation (FISA) delivered during the FISA World Congress held from Feb. 14-17 in Copenhagen.
Thessaloniki and the Greek Rowing Federation will present the 2014 World Rowing Coastal Championship for three consecutive days in early October. A FISA delegation had visited Thessaloniki almost a week ago to meet with members of the city and federation to let the know.
Municipal officials signed the agreement and hope for an economic boost. The rowing coastal routes will take place at the central front of the city’s seacoast, which will enliven it not only with locals but visitors as well. The races will commence right before the new City Hall and return to the harbor with spiral routes.
According to estimates, more than 400 athletes from around the world will participate in next year’s championship, who along with their teams and escorts will bring many more visitors to the city of Thessaloniki that will be at the time the meeting point for all rowing enthusiasts.
