Bulgaria will host the Canoe Marathon World Cup. The International Canoeing Federation has officially informed the Bulgarian headquarters that the competitions for men, women, boys and girls will take place from June 2 to 4 in Ruse.
However, a week ago, the Cunning Sports Club has sounded the alarm over the drying up of Lake “Lipnik”, which is a rowing base for training and competitions. The municipality explained that this is done at the threshold of the winter season, so that the neighboring villages are not flooded in the event of heavy rains.
The International Federation has already approved the venue for the competition. There is also another visit from representatives of the federation.
They are currently 550 meters short of the longest lap of the 1.5km race.
“We hope there will be rainfall and the water will not be drained for a certain period“, said Evgeni Nedev, president of the canoe-kayak sports club Lokomotiv-Ruse.
Another problem is the water area of the Lakebecause the papur currently occupies part of the water area.
According to Nedev, there are two options to solve this problem. One is a cane cutting machine. The second is to release grass carp and walleye.
A delegation of six representatives of the international federation is expected in June.
