Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Rowing and CanoeingWatch
Welcome to the Tokyo Olympics 2020!
~This thread is all about Rowing and Canoeing~
Rowing was scheduled to be included in the first (1896) modern summer Olympic games, but got cancelled due to bad weather! It has been ever-present since 1900, however. For 2020, the rowing programme features a total of fourteen events, seven each for both men and women in identical boat classes.
Canoeing is a relative newcomer, making its debut as an official Olympic sport in 1936. Canoeing will be contested in two main disciplines: slalom, which consists of four medal events, and sprint, which consists of twelve medal events.
The schedule for rowing can be found here.
The schedule for canoe slalom can be found here.
The schedule for canoe spring can be found here.
