Bogotá, Colombia (16 August): Exciting racing ensued at the Ninja World Cup No. 2 this week with 130 elite and amateur athletes competing over water on the Ninja Speed course. Thousands of spectators braved wet conditions to watch the competition during the Summer Festival in parks across Bogotá.

Instituto Distrital de Recreación y Deporte (IDRD) Bogotá provided the course and event in collaboration with Bogotá Ninja.
