2014 Canoe Slalom worlds headed to Deep Creek's ASCI

May 26, 2011|By From Sun staff reports

The 2014 Canoe Slalom World Championships will be held Sept. 16-21 in Western Maryland.

The International Canoe Federation has awarded the event to Adventure Sports Center International over competing entries from Vienna, Austria and Krakow, Poland.

ASCI, located in Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County, is home to the world's only mountaintop man-made whitewater course and has taken more than 44,000 people paddling since it opened in 2007.

The championships will return to the United States for the first time since 1989, when they were held on the Savage River, also in Garrett County.

Deep Creek 2014 will be part of the state's Star Spangled 200 celebration (Sept. 9-12, 2014), which marks the turning point in the War of 1812.
