Sport review

Extreme slalom boating is a new modality in this whitewater sport, in which four athletes jump from a ramp - approximately 3 meters high - in a fight to achieve first place. The tour is full of nuances that increase the difficulty of the competition, simultaneous turns, turns and jumps, which make this competition a delicious challenge for the most experienced kayakers. Athletes have to cross rivers at full speed, overcoming fast waters, rocks, eddies. In slalom boating, paddle paddles are used and sit on an open boat. In kayaking, athletes use a double paddle paddle and sit in the cabin of their boat. Each test will begin with qualifying series. All athletes will tour the circuit twice. The best result of each athlete's qualifying rounds will advance to the semifinal. Athletes with the best time in the semifinal will advance to the final. In addition, the Extreme Slalom Boating test will begin with a series of pre-competitive tests, which will allow all participating athletes to be sorted by time. These tests will be done with one athlete at a time without considering doors. Once the test sleeve is finished with the athletes ordered, it will go to the preliminary stage, where it qualifies for the semifinals and then to the final. Cuba leads the medal table with 36 gold medals, followed by the United States with 25. The Venues at the Lima 2019 Pan American Games will be in the south of the city in Lunahuaná, Cañete.
