Right Conditions for Sporting Success
“Your life. Your sport. It’s your time!”
That’s the motto of the Upper Austrian Sports Strategy for 2025. The aim of this incentive is to motivate even more people to participate in sport – and mass sport events like the 2019 World Rowing Championships support us in its achievement. We are all winners: sport, economy, and tourism. This is why the federal province of Upper Austria has invested 3.5 million euros in the new National Training Centre for Rowing and Canoeing in Linz-Ottensheim. We want to create perfect conditions in order to celebrate sporting successes! Many thanks to everybody for the engagement prior to the 2019 World Rowing Championships.
Michael Strugl, Vice-Governor and Minister of Economy and Sports, Upper Austria
Ottensheim is looking forward to exciting World Championships
The 2019 World Rowing Championships are a big honour for me as Mayor of Ottensheim as well as for our beautiful municipality at the Danube.
I would like to thank all responsible persons of the Austrian Rowing Federation, who have made this event possible. Also, I would like to thank all contributors, who are in charge of planning, organisation, and implementation of the competition. I want to wish all the participants good luck, all the spectators a good time in our charming municipality in Upper Austria and I am looking forward to exciting World Championships!
Franz Füreder, Mayor of Linz
