The third ICF canoe sprint Super Cup has been confirmed for Oklahoma City, USA, in August, and is set to feature Olympic and world champions competing under lights for generous prizemoney.

The August 21 invitational Super Cup, which had been scheduled for 2020 but had to be postponed due to Covid-19, will feature races over 350 metres and will be televised live on networks around the globe.

The unique 350m distance will allow sprint paddlers to take on endurance racers. The excellent lighting at the course will also give athletes a rare opportunity to race at night. It will also enable athletes to maintain race fitness between the Tokyo Olympics and this year’s ICF canoe sprint world championships in Copenhagen in September.

The boathouse district of Oklahoma City features a world-class 4000 metre race and training course and a $45m whitewater rafting and kayaking centre.

The inaugural ICF Super Cups were held in Barnaul, Russia, and Linyi, China, in 2019, and attracted Olympians and world champions from all corners of the globe.
