Gabi Yankelevich | Sportscene – With more than three thousand lakes and over thirty-three thousand kilometers of rivers and streams, Brandenburg, Germany was the ideal spot to host the 2014 ECA Canoe Sprint European Championships. The conditions for this year’s championships were at times more suitable for a surf ski or sailing competition, but the athletes who train in rough conditions showed their mettle.
Women’s canoe action started off on Saturday July 12 with the Paracanoe events. Great Britain completely dominated all three women’s canoe events. In fact, if all three women’s paracanoe classes were combined into one race, Great Britain would have swept the podium.
