2012 Olympic Canoe/Kayak Sprint Schedule

Canada has qualified seven boats in canoe/kayak flatwater for the 2012 Olympics. The team is headlined by three-time Olympic medallist Adam van Koeverden, who will compete in the K-1 1000m. He won bronze in that event at Athens 2004. His primary event, the 500m, is no longer an Olympic discipline. He won gold in 2004 and silver in 2008 in the 500m. van Koeverden has now shifted his focus to the 1000m though, where he won a gold medal at the World Championships last year. He is Canada’s only serious medal contender at the 2012 Olympic in canoeing.

Rob Faulds and Larry Cain will call canoe sprint on CTV during the 2012 Olympics. The competition will take place the second week of The Games after rowing has concluded. CTV, TSN or Sportsnet will show coverage everyday during the six days of competition. Remember that this schedule is highly subject to change. Check back daily during The Games for an up-to-date broadcast schedule. All times are Atlantic Daylight Time, which is BST-4 and EDT+1.
