Canoe Slalom: Gate Judging at Oceania 2012

This year’s canoe slalom Oceania Championships took place at the Penrith Whitewater Stadium from 24-26 February.

During the event I videoed a section of the course that gave judges a great opportunity to develop their observational skills.

The video here shows a number of C1M paddlers negotiating the gates 16 to 19 at the bottom of the Penrith course. The paddlers were competing in the semi-final run of the class.

I have added my own audio commentary but point out that this is my observation not a report of the judges’ decisions in that section of the course.

A high resolution copy of the video without my commentary is available at
