In this second episode of 'How Sport Stars Cope in Covid-19' we talk to Rio 2016 Olympic canoe sprint gold medalist Tom Leibscher of Germany, Australia's canoe slalom Olympic silver and bronze medalist Jessica Fox, and Paralympic silver and bronze medalist Charlotte Henshaw of Great Britain about how they are coping with coronavirus restrictions. Like all athletes, its a struggle, but they are not losing sight of the bigger picture.

Planet Canoe

Canoeing is a truly international sport and activity. Anywhere in the world where there is water, there is usually a canoe nearby.

The International Canoe Federation is the world governing body for a dozen different types of canoeing, from the Olympic and Paralympic sports of slalom, sprint and paracanoe, team events like canoe polo and dragon boat, to the types of activity you will find on lakes, rivers and oceans around the world, including SUP, freestyle, wildwater, marathon and ocean racing.

We want to introduce you to some of the biggest names in our sports, and let them tell you their story.

Discover the adventurous world of paddling through insights and advice from the worlds best canoe/kayak athletes and coaches.

We hope to inspire you to get active and on the water, while improving your technique too.
