They call the event a celebration of sports, and they intend to win a bag of medals in Krakow. Polish canoeists are preparing for the European Games Krakow – Malopolska 2023.
250 athletes are expected to compete in classic canoeing, and about 200 in slalom, and the goal of all is the same – a medal at the European Games Krakow – Malopolska 2023.
The Poles have already begun preparations for the event, which will start in exactly two months. – We will treat this competition as prestigious,” announces the president of the Polish Canoe Association Grzegorz Kotowicz.
Slalom canoeists will compete on the Kolna course in three individual and two team competitions. In classical kayaking, on the other hand, participants will compete in seven men’s and women’s competitions, as well as two mixed competitions over two distances. The competition will be held on a straight regatta course on the Kryspin lagoon.
– Krakow is mainly associated with the slalom track there, which often hosts the best specialists in the field. This year we also have the world junior and youth championships there. As for the sprint, it promises to be a very interesting competition. A temporary 500-meter track will be built on the Kryspin Reservoir. So, there will be no shortage of attractions, and our people will certainly adapt to any conditions – notes President Kotowicz.
