Canoe Sprint

June 25-27 2019

Canoe Sprint is one of the best-known competitive canoeing disciplines. This is probably due to its inclusion in the Olympic Games since 1936. It is contested on flatwater over four distances – 200m, 500m, 1000m and 5000m.

In Canoe Sprint events, athletes race on a straight course with each boat in a separate lane. There are kayak events in single (K1), double (K2) and four (K4) boats, and canoe events in single (C1) and double (C2) boats. In a kayak, the paddler is seated and uses a two-blade paddle, while in a canoe, the paddler is kneeling on one knee, and uses a single-blade paddle.

Competitions will take place at the venue
