World Championship competitors can expect appreciative spectators in Račice
The Czech Rowing Association, together with the Labe Arena of the Ústí Region, where the World Rowing Championships are returning after 29 years, have created a project tailored to this year’s championships, which connects each participating country with ambassadors selected from Czech schoolchildren and students.
The project, titled #ADOPTROWING, ensures that the rowing federations competing at the World Championships have domestic fans. They will be seen together at the World Championships Opening Ceremony on 17 September. Here representatives from Czech schools will carry the flags of the individual teams with which they are connected under the #ADOPTROWING project.
School ambassadors had several options for connecting with and supporting their rowing champions. They could contact the rowing federation or specific crews directly. They communicate with each other by e-mail or via Facebook using a group set up specifically for this purpose.
And the champions of the countries involved? The fans should make them feel exceptionally welcome in Račice this year.
