Many eyes from around the world will be on Garrett County and the Adventure Sports Center International (ASCI) whitewater course on Marsh Mountain in September 2014, as the International Canoe Federation (ICF) has awarded the 2014 Canoe Slalom World Championships to the ASCI site in McHenry. Following presentations at its spring board meeting in Paris last Friday, ICF selected ASCI’s bid to host the event over competing entries from Vienna, Austria, and Krakow, Poland. The event will also mark the 25th anniversary of the 1989 World Championships, which were held on the Savage River in Garrett County. Garrett County commissioner Gregan Crawford and ASCI executive director Matt Taylor made the bid presentation in Paris last week. Pictured from left above are Crawford, ICF president José Perurena López, and Taylor. The 2014 competition will also mark a return of world championship whitewater canoe and kayak racing to the United States for the first time since the 1989 Worlds.
