Looking Back: The ’89 Slalom Worlds

In June 1989, the Savage River was not its usual hidden self. Thousands gathered along the country road that followed its course. People scrambled the steep banks, crouched in the lush forest, and filtered on to recently constructed observation decks. All wanting the optimum view of the red and green poles hovering over the rapids. They were here to witness the Canoe and Kayak Slalom World Championships—the first of which had ever been hosted in the United States.
