The Canoe sprint is a simple race, the fastest person to the finish wins. Two types of boat are used in canoe sprint, canoes & kayaks.

The first official event to use both of these crafts for sport was during the mid 19th century. By the 1890s, canoe sport was popular throughout the European continent.

During the 1924 games in Paris, flatwater canoeing featured as a demonstration sport. It later became an Olympic discipline in Berlin in 1936.

Europe dominates this sport overall at both the Olympic Games and the World Championships. Today, the Olympic canoe/kayak flatwater program is made up of 12 events.
