CANOE SLALOM

Richard Hounslow competed in CANOE SLALOM

Did you know?

  • Through the course of the Games, some 60,000 spectators will visit the new Lee Valley White Water Centre to witness canoe slalom.
  • Modelled on slalom skiing, canoe slalom involves timed runs down a white water course.
  • Competitors have to negotiate up to 25 gates on the 300m course, some of them upstream, incurring a time penalty for every one they miss.
  • Touching a gate adds a two second penalty to the overall time, while 50 seconds are added if a gate is missed altogether.
  • There are four events in all, the men's canoe single (C1 men), men's canoe double (C2 men), men's kayak single (K1 men) and women's kayak single (K1 women).
