ABOUT THE VENUE
“Brest Regional Rowing Center of Olympic reserve”: The Brest regatta course is one of the training grounds of the two-time Olympic Champion and six-time World Champion single sculler Ekaterina Karsten-Khodotovitch. Karsten was Belarus’ first athlete to win an Olympic medal, making her a national hero. The first competition was organized in 1994. In 1997 the course was reconstructed. It has previously hosted the 2009 European Rowing Championships and 2010 World Rowing Under 23 Championships. The length of the course is 2250m and 150m wide.
Brest is situated in the southwest of Belarus at the confluence of the Bug and Mukhavyets rivers, 350km from the capital Minsk. It has a population of 300,000 inhabitants. The city was founded by the Slavs. During World War I the city was captured by the German army in 1915. In 1918 the city was declared part of the Belarusian Democratic Republic. However, in 1919 the newly reconstituted Poland took control of Brest. From 1941-1944, during World War II, Germany occupied Brest. From 1944 to 1991 the city was part of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) and is now in Belarus.
