Olympic Slalom Course

This is the canoe slalom course in Athens for the Olympics. It looks exceedingly nice, I think I can even see a conveyer belt going from the bottom to the top to bring paddlers back up. I would be happy to have the French build one in my back garden if I had to promise to give them a gold medal or two in return.

  1. They were meant to be building a white water run at Strathclyde park, Strathclyde University canoe club raised some cash to help with the feasibility study. It all seems to have quietly faded away of course. Last I heard they were doing tests to find out which was the cleaner water source, the Clyde or Strathclyde Loch. Scarily it was the Loch that won that test.
