Canadian National Rowing Team to Train in Ioannina, Greece

The Canadian National Rowing team will be returning to Lake Pamvotida in Ioannina on August 24, to begin training for the Tokyo Olympic Games.

More than 50 athletes of the national team chose Ioannina as their destination since, due to the excellent conditions that they encountered there last year, the location is one of their favourite training spots.

President of the Greek Rowing Federation, Ioannis Karras, said that sports tourism in Ioannina is becoming a reality.  He went on to say that they will try and bring more foreign teams to the city so that by becoming a sports venue, it would help to promote Ioannina abroad.
