Background Discussion
From September 23 – October 1, 2017, the World Rowing Championships, an international rowing regatta organized by FISA (the International Rowing Federation), were held at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida. In the 48 years of the event’s existence, the United States has hosted only one other World Championships, in 1994 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

930 athletes and support teams from 69 countries attended the event. Thousands of spectators attended from around the region and beyond. 

This award is in recognition of the significant contributions Manatee County staff made toward ensuring the event was a success.
