The Riversport OKC paddling center on the Oklahoma River was built with the intention of training Olympians and hosting international-scale events. On August 26-28, 2022, Riversport put its vision on display as the host of a global gathering in Oklahoma City that spanned the paddling spectrum.
Oklahoma City held three paddling events melded together into one weekend: the ICF Standup Paddling World Cup, the invitational ICF Canoe Sprint Super Cup, and Red Bull Rapids, a fun-loving and amusing rafting race at the Riversport whitewater park.
Athletes from 20 countries landed in Oklahoma to compete in the events and enjoy the paddling festival, appropriately called the World Party.
Results from the ICF Standup Paddling World Cup and ICF Canoe Sprint Super Cup, as well as more information on the entire festival, can be found at: https://www.riversportokc.org/events/2022-icf-world-events/
