Germany’s Florian Breuer competes during the 2019 ICF Canoe
Slalom World Championships on September 26. The sport, which
began in Switzerland in 1933 as a summer alternative to slalom skiing, involves navigating through a mix of upstream and downstream gates in whitewater rapids. The boats are smaller and lighter than canoe sprint boats in order to be maneuvered more quickly.
