The first day of official trainings, prior of definitive races, came to an end. The athletes enjoyed the day without rain, which went better as the hours were passing by.
Paraphrasing what the athletes said about the training, the level of the water has risen a little bit because of the rain of yesterday night, but they trained a lot and they are ready to face anything.
Today, are the first races of this World Championship, starting with Downriver in Villeneuve (Aosta) where two groups of athletes, A and B, are going to compete. They are also going to the open ceremony of World Championship on a pair with the ICF awards ceremony.
