The Deep Creek 2014 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships were held September 17-21, 2014 at the Adventure Sports Center International (ASCI) in McHenry Maryland. These World Championships represented a return of the Olympic Sport to the United States after 25 years when they were held on the Savage River here in Western Maryland. The World Championships were a significant success in spotlighting the facility as a world class venue and the region as a true epicenter of adventure sports and outdoor recreation. High praise was received from the ICF and USA Canoe/Kayak (The National Federation) for the exemplary event which exceeded all of their expectations. The atmosphere was of an Olympic caliber event.
