ICF World Championships, Duisburg – Everything you need to know

Paris qualifications in sight at ICF Canoe Sprint & Paracanoe World Championships, 23-27 August in Duisburg, Germany.

Excitement is building for the New Zealand Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe teams first chance at Olympic & Paralympic qualifications. 

The team is making their final preparations in France ahead of next week’s ICF Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe World Championships in Duisburg, Germany.

With this event being the only chance to qualify the K4 (four-person kayak) 500m, pressure is mounting but the Kiwi men’s and women’s team are ready to make their mark. If New Zealand were to qualify both a men’s and women’s K4 for the Paris 2024 Olympics it would be a historic first for the team.

The K1 and K2 (two-person kayak) will have another chance to qualify boats at the Oceania Championships in March 2024. While the Paracanoe athletes will also get another shot at qualifications at a World Cup next year.
