US Whitewater Center in Charlotte: Big Weekend April 25-27

The newly finished US Whitewater Center in Charlotte plays host, today through Sunday, to a bevy of international racers. Details are here, but the competitions include the US Olympic Trials, as well as The Pan Am Championships and Olympic Qualifier.

Charlotte is an easy 2.5 hour drive from Asheville, and the events offer a chance to see world class athletes that is rare for most of us. The "riverbed" is man made, with the water being diverted from The Catawba River. The blog Rivers and Creeks has a nice photo gallery.

And below, a video, 1 min and 56 seconds of what a very smooth run in this exciting, but somewhat obscure Olympic competition looks like.

ENJOY
