British Canoeing is dedicated to supporting the most talented athletes in the Olympic disciplines of Canoe Slalom, Canoe Sprint Racing and Paracanoe to win medals at the highest level. Here is everything you want to know about the athletes, coaches and staff working towards Olympic success.
Rio 2016 was our most successful Olympic Games winning 2 Gold and 2 Silver medals across the Slalom and Sprint disciplines. It was also the first time that Paracanoe had been included in the Paralympic Games and we achieved a fantastic 5 medals (3 Gold and 2 Bronze) from the 6 events available. As we go into the Tokyo cycle we aim to improve on these performances for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
