In canoe slalom, racers sail a canoe or kayak through a white-water course in the quickest time possible, passing through a combination of upstream and downstream gates on river rapids. The course is around 250 metres long, with a maximum of 25 gates, including six or eight upstream gates. The route is set up so that contestants can complete it in 95 seconds or less.

HANEDA Takuya of Japan is doing well at home and looking to improve on his bronze medal from Rio 2016.
