Canoeing is an activity which involves paddling a canoe with a single-bladed paddle down a large body of river.
Canoeing is performed in the river and mostly it is hosted in large rivers where the players race while sitting in the boat. They try to cross the river with the help of paddle provided. It can be played as a single person or as a team.
A canoeist is the only role to play in the sport.
The equipment needed to play the sport is a coneo, dry bag, paddles, and water shoes. For extra safety measures, a white water helmet will help.
Lisa Carrington MNZM is a flatwater canoeist and New Zealand's most successful Olympian, having won a total of five gold medals and one bronze medal.
