What is Canoe Slalom?

It is an Olympic sport that is held on rivers or on artificial white water courses some 200 – 400 meters long, 260 m in the Olympic course. The aim is to complete a designated course, passing through numbered gates, without penalties and in the shortest time possible. When gates are green and white, the athletes have to pass them in the direction of current (downstream). When gates are red and white, the athletes have to pass them in the opposite direction. When an athlete touches a gate (with a boat, paddle or body) he/she receives a 2 second penalty. For the gates that the athlete fails or misses to pass, a 50 seconds penalty is received. The time taken to complete the course plus any penalties determines the paddler’s score. The paddler with the lowest score wins the competition.

The boats used can be a kayak or a canoe (single or double). In a kayak the athlete sits and uses a double bladed paddle while in a canoe the athlete kneels in the boat and use a single bladed paddle.

In World Championships categories are, in individual and teams of three padlers:

  • K1M    Men's single kayak
  • K1W   Women's single kayak  
  • C1M    Men's single canoe
  • CIW    Women’s single canoe
  • C2Mx  Mix double canoe
