Olympic Games - Canoeing

Canoeing first entered the Olympic Games in 1936  in Berlin, having been a demonstration sport at the 1924 Games in Paris. There are two disciplines, slalom (individual runs through gates set on a white water course against the clock, with time penalties awarded for ocontacting any of the gates) and sprint (races over a straight, flat water course).
Two styles of boats are used. Canoes with one or two canoers and kayaks with one, two or four kayakers.  C-1 is a canoe singles event, K-2 is a kayak doubles event and so on.
The men's 500-metre events will be replaced at the 2012 Games in London by 200m events.


The venue used in 2008 was the Shunyi Park, Beijing, China
