Curtis McGrath is the most successful paracanoe athlete ever, with three Paralympic gold medals. In our Path to Paris conversation Curtis revisits the day he stepped on a mine in Afghanistan, how he turned tragedy into triumph, and what the future might hold for the Australian.

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 world's best canoe, kayak, and stand-up paddling athletes and coaches.

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