Iranian athlete bags bronze in 2017 ICF Canoe Champs

Tehran, Aug 26, IRNA – Iranian athlete Adel Mojalali in 200-meter canoe ranked third in 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships which is underway in Czech Republic.

After Belarusian and Georgian rivals, Mojalali stood on the third place in final (A) stage.

The 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships started work on August 23 and it will be underway until August 27 in Račice, Czech Republic.

Canoe sprint competitions are contested in either a Canadian canoe (C), an open canoe with a single-blade paddle, or in a kayak (K), a closed canoe with a double-bladed paddle. Each canoe or kayak can hold one person (1), two people (2), or four people (4).

For each of the specific canoes or kayaks, such as a K-1 (kayak single), the competition distances can be 200, 500, 1000 or 5000 meters. When a competition is listed as a K-2 500m event, for example, it means two people are in a kayak competing over a distance of 500 meters.
