The countdown is on for the 2017 World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand where Canoeing will be one of 28 sports taking place across 45 competition venues.

 

With a total number of 25,000 athletes expected to compete in 2017, World Masters Games is the world’s largest multi-sport competition for masters-aged athletes.

 

The World Masters Games 2017 Canoe programme is being delivered in conjunction with the New Zealand Canoe Federation. The competition, which also includes para-sport events, has five disciplines on the schedule. Canoe Slalom will be located at Wero, a new state of the art venue in Manukau. Takapuna Beach will be a notable highlight for Waka Ama Marathon and Canoe Ocean Ski, whilst Lake Pupuke will host Canoe Polo, Dragon Boating, Canoe Racing and Waka Ama. The minimum age category differs per competition format, starting from 30+ in Canoe Polo.

 

Reflecting on the sheer size and scale of the international event, World Masters Games 2017 Organising Committee Chief Executive Jennah Wootten says:

 

“Our goal is to deliver on every level a superior Games, for the thousands of competitors who will travel internationally to compete, and for the good of our reputation as a host nation.

 

“We hope people will get behind the Games effort, and start registering their interest – either as participants, officials or perhaps volunteers. We’ll be welcoming athletes from 100 countries to our country for the World Masters Games. We know New Zealanders will welcome these visitors in true kiwi style, and no doubt put up some stiff competition to keep the Games interesting.”
