For the third time since this event was introduced to the Olympic Games, ITT Industries' Flygt pumps will be used to power water around a white water rafting course. The company's pumps provided the rapids for the last two summer Games in Spain and Australia, and will do it again, this time in Athens, Greece, site of the 2004 Olympics.

Six 150-kilowatt propeller pumps will be used to pump water around the 500 meter course, and Flygt also will supply the monitoring and control equipment for the pumps.
