Lift the Ban on Women's Canoeing at the Olympics for Rio 2016


Adding five women's canoe events to the Olympic program will have far-reaching benefits for developing women and girls not just in the sport of Canoeing, but in all sports. And it will send a message to the world that the ICF and IOC respect the principle of the Olympic Charter and equal opportunity in sport.  The added benefit:  growing the canoe discipline world-wide
