China decided to entrust Hydrostadium with the creation of the white water stadium that would be used for the competitions organised during the 10th Republic Games of China. The white water course of Nankin or Nanjing, has a “U shape” like the course in Sydney. The river is totally modular thanks to the Omniflots® system that makes it possible to adapt the navigation level to all kind of users. The cascades river which is a succession of waterfalls representing mountain torrents is an ideal complement for the canyoning initiation.
