Central Queensland set to become Olympic training destination
Posted on June 16th, 2021
With just 37 days before the world’s greatest athletes take stage at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, Australia’s best canoeists and rowers are ready to hit the Fitzroy River in Rockhampton for some last-minute intensive training.
Previously hailed as one of the best training courses for elite rowers of international standard, the Australian teams will commence their camps this month, stirring up the flat waters of Tunuba and honing their times in readiness for the greatest show on earth.
Despite the recent threat of the new virus strain spreading across the world the K4 Women’s Canoe team and Australian Rowing teams are remaining focussed on the task at hand and looking forward to their sub-tropical days on the water in Central Queensland.
Following their intensive training schedule, teams will then spend their time resting and recovering and exploring the beef capital.
Rockhampton is quite well known for our top-class rowing conditions and the river is often in demand throughout the year and it looks absolutely spectacular at the moment as we delve into our mind winter.
Our destination is incredibly fortunate to have this calibre of athlete walking our streets and we are very proud to showcase our cities and towns to our Australian Olympians.
