Canoe is a paddle sport in which participants usually kneel facing forward in an open or closed-decked canoe. Then participants propel themselves by using a single-bladed paddle.

Kayaking is similar to canoe with some differences. Kayak has a closed deck and participants propel themselves forward by using a double-bladed paddle. Also in kayak, participants are always seated.

According to the classification of IOC (International Olympic Committee), canoe events are categorized into two groups: slalom and sprint.

During canoe/kayak sprint, participants compete on calm water, whereas during canoe/kayak slalom, participants have to navigate their canoes or kayaks through a course of hanging gates on Whitewater River (a rapid river with turbulence) in the fastest time.
