The capital of Ukraine is ready to host the event of the next week: Pre World Rafting Championship. It is a test event: for the first time, as a WRF's initiative, international athletes will meet and compete in this water sport.
On 4th October rafters, coaches, technicians and presidents from six selected nations will arrive to Kiev: Armenia, Belarus, Italy, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine. On the next day the venue will be open for the official trainings and races will be on 6th and 7th, at 10 a.m.. The event, managed by the WRF member Bakanychev Olexandr, is open to the senior category and men, women and mix teams.


The Ukraine team will paddle with a special athlete who is also a member of the Ukraine federation: Kornienko Oleksandr. He is a new entry in the Pararafting team, but the paddle sport is his last challenge: we saw him at the Paralimpic Games in Russia 4 years ago, Sochi 2014, when he took the 8th place in cross country ski and the 6th place in biathlon. He will paddle with 3 other athletes (R4 teams only) at the Yacht Club "Fregat": there will be not only races and ceremonies but also meetings in order to test and approve the WRF rules, discussed in the last months and especially 2 weeks ago by the Belarus president, Aleksandr Skakun, who has been to Kiev and tested the venue.
It is the beginning of a long-term project and everything is ready to start.
