A special whitewater week is just finished in Aosta Valley: the river Dora Baltea, that hosted the World Junior and U23 World Championship 2018, welcommed U19 athletes from Bulgaria, Italy, Romania and Serbia. Our young rafters arrived on 28th July in the Rafting Aventure Park in Villeneuve and spent 7 days enjoying the Alps, the river and the main attractions of the Valley thanks to the collaboration between WRF and the local Society CVA (Compagnia Valdostana delle Acque SPA).
 
The athletes first paddled in the lake, focusing on the paddling techniques, coordination and strategies between the teammates, throwing the rope and flipping the rafts, straight observed by WRF technicians and their coaches who had the opportunity to share rafting knowledges and experiences for a week.

Different sections and levels of the river has been run, from a swimming test in a flat water part of the Downriver 2018, through the Leverogne Gorges, to the 4th level rapids of the upper Dora Baltea, at the foot of the Mont Blanc.
River activities has been aternated with trekking in the lateral Valleys, adventure park and guided visits to Ancient Roman city of Aosta.

After a full immersion in Aosta Valley the athletes declared: "We are exausted but very happy about this week, we learned a lot and we are ready to show what we learned: hope to see you in Kosovo at the World Cup this month!"
