PARIS 2024

Olympic Canoe

By Phil Bainbridge

July 26, 2024 - August 11, 2024 - The 2024 summer Olympic Games, the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, take place in Paris, France and the canoe events will be held at Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium.

A new medal event for both men and women is set to make a splash at the Paris Games with the introduction of Kayak Cross, which sees four athletes racing against one another in a head-to-head on a slalom course, and features physical clashes and a compulsory eskimo roll.

The Paris 2024 Olympic Games feature 32 sports encompassing 329 events – fewer than the preceding Tokyo Olympics, after Baseball, Softball and Karate were axed and some other events lost medal categories.
