Kayak-Canoe World Cup in Szeged, Hungary

Hungarion version

Over the years I’ve been a regular visitor of the national rowing centre at Maty-er and have photographed kayak-canoe, a sport Hungary by the way excels in, quite a few times now. So last weekend at the 2013 World Cup on the river Tisza in Szeged, southern Hungary, I thought why not spend a few days photographing it. Here’s some of of what I saw.
