The London Canoe Sprint Invitational International was the first international canoe sprint regatta to take place in Britain for more than 30 years.
Eton Dorney had also staged the Rowing test event – the FISA World Rowing Junior Championships – just weeks before the London Canoe Sprint Invitational International Regatta. London 2012 used the Canoe Sprint event specifically to test the timing, technology and workforce for the venue.
Luckes said: 'Although Eton Dorney is a proven world-class venue, it was still crucial for us to test our operations ahead of the Games. The event has gone remarkably well and we have seen some fantastic sport, witnessing world class athletes competing in an Olympic venue. We are pleased with how the event has run and are delighted with the athlete feedback.'
