Olympic canoeing events are divided into two categories – kayaking, in which a two-sided paddle is used, and Canadian canoeing, in which a single-bladed paddle is used. While the kayak competitor merely alternates strokes, the Canadian canoeist must sit in a half-kneeling position, switching the blade from side to side.
 
First introduced to the games in 1936, most Olympic canoeing events are known as flat-water races, since they are held on the calm waters of a lake. Men’s kayak competitions include singles at 500 and 1000 meters, pairs at 500 and 1000 meters, and four-man teams at 1000 meters. Women’s kayaking includes a 500-meter race for singles, pairs and teams of four.  In Canadian canoeing, men compete at distances of 500 and 1000 meters as singles and in pairs. Women do not compete in this event.
 
Slalom canoeing, also know as white-water canoeing, was introduced temporarily for the 1972 games. In 1992, it became a permanent event in the summer games. Competitors are required to paddle down an obstacle course, much in the same manner as slalom races in skiing. 
 
Single kayak slalom races are held for both men and women, but only men compete in the Canadian slalom singles and pairs events.
