This is the dam that controls the water speed so important to a kayak event. The course was officially opened in 1979 by 2 Olympic Gold Medalist kayakers one of which was a woman. Claudia, the woman of the duo, told me she let her partner go first so she could see where not to go. He was dumped. I tried to show in this picture exactly what these kayakers were facing. I took the picture for this work from the piece of land in the foreground.
