Oklahoma City to Host 2013 CanAmMex Rowing Regatta

April 11, 2013

The United States will play host to the 2013 CanAmMex Regatta, unhealthy which takes place July 7-14 at the Oklahoma City High Performance Center in Oklahoma City, Okla.

The event brings together junior competitors from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

“The regatta serves two purposes,” said USRowing Director of Development Steve Hargis. “It brings together each country’s developmental junior athletes, coxswains and coaches for friendly, yet high-level competition. Secondly, this regatta provides a life opportunity for its participants and serves as a cultural experience. For many, CanAmMex will be an important step in development toward potential future U.S. Junior National Team, Under 23 and Senior National Team opportunities.

“I am very excited about this opportunity to train and race at a recognized world-class venue,” said Hargis. “I look forward to seeing the athletes in action with the great spirit and sportsmanship that defines CanAmMex.”

“We’re pleased once again to welcome this prestigious international event to the Boathouse District and Oklahoma City National High Performance Center,” said OKC Boathouse Foundation Executive Director Mike Knopp. “As the site for the 2008 event, we’ve seen the positive impact this regatta has on the athletes who participate and look forward to seeing the top youth in North America race on the Oklahoma River.”

Racing will be contested in twelve events including the men’s and women’s single sculls, double sculls, pair, quadruple sculls, four with coxswain and eight.
