The best moments of canoe racing

Canoe is a universal name for rowless rowing boats of different nations. A characteristic feature is the method of rowing - it is carried out by a spade-shaped single-blade oar, which also is ruled by turning the oar in the water and changing its trajectory at the end of the stroke. Rowers in a canoe are seated on the bottom of the boat or on bank seats.

As a sport discipline, canoeing is included in the Olympic sports kayaking and canoeing and rowing slalom.
