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?

There we go:

The canoe/kayak event of the 29th Olympic Games will be held at the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park on the side of Chaobai River in the Shunyi District of Beijing from August 11-23, 2008.
Didn't see any pics though.

having the olympics for whitewater at a man made venue is weak sauce.
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!
