In all, more than 300 athletes representing 55 countries will be vying for world titles on the spectacular whitewater slalom park located in the heart of La Seu. New this year are the addition of the fruits of the ICF’s development programme, notably the addition of Nepal and Uganda on the heat sheets as well as a demonstration event comprised of C1 women.
