Canoe international competition postponed



ATHENS, Greece -- An international canoe competition at a new Olympic venue was postponed so work could continue at the site.

The rescheduling of the competition, planned for May 7-9, reflects the time pressures at even the most completed venues.

The rowing center in Schinias has hosted test events for the Aug. 13-29 Games, but landscaping and other work is still needed.

The World Cup One canoe meet, which is not an Olympic test event, was rescheduled to June 4-6, organizers said.
