„The Eiskanal, part of Augsburg’s World Heritage Site, plays a key role being the sole active sporting venue entitled with this attribute - an award that implies due care. Next to the sporting highlights, the World Championships may help to raise consciousness about the global shortage of potable water. Furthermore, multifaceted cultural events are meant to underline the spirit of unity, especially after the Covid crisis. Guests from around the globe are welcome to celebrate together.“

Jürgen K. Enninger, Deputy Mayor for Culture, World Heritage and Sports

„The Olympic course of 1972 is a part of my personal story, it’s the foundation of my Olympic victory in Tokyo. For ten years I’ve been doing lap after lap here, pushing my limits, giving my blood, sweat and tears and still I’m having a lot of fun here. Hitting the start line of the World Championships at home will mean the world to me.“

„Being born in Augsburg, the 2022 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships are a dream coming true. Participating at World Championships in my hometown has been my dream ever since I’ve been a spectator here in 2003.“

Hannes Aigner, Olympic bronze medallist Tokyo 2020 – K1

„I am joyfully looking forward to the World Championships at home. This event will be something special for our sport. In 1972 Augsburg was the birthplace of Olympic canoe slalom. It was our Olympic debut.“

Sideris Tasiadis, Olympic bronze medallist Tokyo 2020 – C1

„To start at the World Championships 2022 at my home course, as the reigning World Champion in C1, will be very special for me. To make this dream come true I will work very hard the next few months. The success in the last World Championships will give me for sure the necessary motivation.“

Elena Lilik (Apel), World Champion C1, Vice World Champion K1 and Extreme Canoe Slalom Bratislava 2021
