The 13th SPORT & FUN in Ried im Innkreis offered a wider range of exhibitors than ever before – the 2019 World Rowing Championships were part of it.
Ottensheim’s local heroes Julian Schöberl and Rainer Kepplinger seized the opportunity to promote the rowing spectacle of the year, taking place from 25 August to 1 September 2019. “It is tremendously supporting to be carried over the finish line by a local crowd of spectators,” explains Julian Schöberl.
Also, Markus Achleitner – Minister of Economy and Sports of Upper Austria – is positive that the 2019 World Rowing Championships are going to be one of the sporting highlights of the year: “We expect more than 2500 athletes from more than 80 countries. The spectators’ response is incredible. Half of the seats have already been sold – remaining tickets should be secured as quickly as possible.”
The Organising Committee under the leadership of Horst Anselm is ready to get started. “It’s like a puzzle game: talking about 3000 pieces in overall, we are only missing five to six,” states Horst Anselm.
