TOKIO 2020

Piragüismo en los Juegos Olímpicos de Tokio

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano 2020, los juegos de la XXXII Olimpiada, se realizan en Tokio, Japón. Los Juegos de Tokio marcan la primera vez que las mujeres competirán en canoas, anteriormente solo lo hacían en kayaks. Algunos eventos masculinos vistos en Río 2016, particularmente slalom de parejas en kayak, se retiraron del programa para permitir paridad de género en la competencia.

Canoeing is divided between slalom and sprint events, using canoes and kayaks.

In slalom, competitors negotiate a whitewater course by weaving through a series of gates against the clock, with time penalties for mistakes such as touching or missing a gate.

In the sprint events, races are held on a flatwater course over 200, 500 and 1,000 metre distances.
