Benderson Park Wins Bid for 2017 World Rowing Championships
Following Sunday’s final events of the World Rowing Championships in Chungju, Korea, FISA’s 2013 Ordinary Congress voted unanimously to award the 2017 World Rowing Championships to Sarasota. The event will be hosted at Nathan Benderson Park in Lakewood Ranch, near the border of Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
