The Olympic Canoe Slalom

This fellow had quite a good day, winning himself a Gold medal.

Apologies for the ropey photo quality, I was a very long way away in Row 29, trying to use a 640mm lens handheld, whilst various folk unobligingly waved national flags in my line of sight.

The event was a great experience, bringing back memories of my own brief slalom career as a teenager in the late 1980s. I’m pretty sure however, that I never competed in any events with 15,000 spectators…
