Rumor was it was going to be an artificial recirculating course but I have not heard anything recently. It would seem that the construction should be done by now if it was, right?

Word on that. I can remember going to the Ark at #1 for the US team trials. I wonder the last time it was on a free flowing river?? I am pretty sure that when they had them in Hotlanta it was still man made.

True, none natural is somewhat lame! Although, Charlotte (national training center home) is pretty beastly for manmade!
