Sport review

The International Canoe Federation (ICF) includes more than ten sport disciplines. Lima 2019 will only include slalom, extreme slalom and sprint events. Canoe slalom is a sport where athletes row at high speed through a whitewater circuit (river or canal) containing rocks, falls and eddies. It can be performed in two ways: sitting on a kayak with a closed cockpit and a double-bladed paddle, or kneeling on a canoe with a closed cockpit and a single-bladed paddle. Every course in this discipline is fitted with 18 different gates that are positioned in the right order. They must not be touched or missed. The course must be completed in the fastest time possible.
