Countdown to the start date of the race


Dear sport friends,

With great pleasure, we are happy to host Olympic Hopes 2022 back in Bratislava.

We work hard, to create National Canoeing and Rowing Centre here in Bratislava at lake Zemník and each year we are getting closer. First step was to have an Olympic course and this happened 6 years ago. Step by step we provide better conditions for the athletes and coaches, not only for their everyday trainings but also for the possibility of organizing top level events starting with Junior European Championships in 2024. And Bratislava has great potential.

Bratislava is situated on the boarder with Austria, Hungary and close to Czech Republic with perfect highway and flight accessibility. Even Zemník is surrounded by nature, it is still close to city center. This location gives it an unique spot for organizing sport events.

Olympic Hopes are an iconic event, all young athletes are focusing on it and we are honoured to be part of it. Also in these difficult times, when nothing is sure and we have to improvise. We believe, the situation will get better and we will organize great event to remember. We do our best, to make it possible.

We look forward to see you in Bratislava and wish you good health and good start to season 2022.
