The Russian Canoe Federation


Rowing and canoeing has been an Olympic sport since 1936, although it has been present at the Olympic Games, by way of informal competitions since as far back as 1924. Rowing and canoeing competitions are conducted under the auspices of the International Canoe Federation. In Russia its representative is the Russian Canoe Federation.

The Russian Canoe Federation assists in organising and holding Russian and international tournaments, developing and promoting this and similar sports and works to further improve the organisation of competitions.

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation has supported several events of the Russian Canoe Federation.
