CANOE SPRINT

Yvonne Schuring competed in CANOE SPRINT

Did you know?

  • There are 12 medal races for canoe sprinters, nine in kayaks and three in canoes.
  • The difference is easy to spot: kayak racers sit in the boat and use a paddle with two blades, while canoe athletes kneel and use a single-bladed paddle which they switch from side to side.
  • Races are held over distances of 200m, 500m or 1000m, either solo, in pairs or in teams of four.
  • Over 90% of all Olympic medals in canoeing have been won by European nations.
  • The most famous competitor of all is the German Birgit Fischer, who won an incredible eight gold and four silver medals between 1980 and 2004.
