The International Canoe Federation is set to relive online some of the most exciting events of recent seasons, as seen through the eyes of the athletes!

The “Athlete’s Eye” series will kick off next week with a replay of the 2019 ICF canoe freestyle world championship finals, with commentary from several of the athletes who took part in the medal rounds.

“The “Athlete’s Eye” series will be perfect at a time when so many sport fans around the world are stuck indoors, looking for exciting events to watch,” ICF canoe freestyle chairman, Lluis Rabaneda, said.

“We are particularly excited to kick off the series with a replay of last year’s ICF freestyle world championships in Sort, Spain, which featured finals under lights in front of a capacity crowd.

“Now for the first time, fans will get to experience the event through the eyes of the athletes, who will be providing the online commentary. It will be fascinating to hear what they thought of the key moments of the finals.”

Among the commentators will be three-time women’s world champion, Emily Jackson, 2018 men’s world champion, Joaquim Fontane Maso, 2019 women’s world championship silver medalist, Marlene Devillez, and 2019 freestyle canoe world champion, Tom Dolle.

The freestyle world championship finals will be shown on the Planet Canoe YouTube channel from 6pm CET on Wednesday, April 15. In coming weeks the ICF will highlight other disciplines, through the eyes of the athletes.
