Slalom, the exciting Olympic whitewater sport, requires the paddler to negotiate a series of ‘gates’ on fast-flowing white water. Paddling technique, strength, water-reading skills and speed are combined, with the competitor aiming for a fast run, timed in seconds, with penalties added for gate touches.
