SARASOTA, FL - Officials from Sarasota and Manatee Counties are back from South Korea, where the FISA Committee officially selected Nathan Benderson Park at the site of the 2017 World Rowing Championships.

There is still a fair amount of work that needs to be accomplished to get the facility ready for a world class event.

To get things started, officials will hold a press conference on Wednesday.

ABC 7 Reporter Bobeth Yates will be there to get official reaction, and find out more about their plan to get ready for 2017.
