  GB Canoe Sprint – Situational Analysis

The panel was asked to investigate the factors contributing to the underperformance of the British Canoeing Sprint World Class Programme against World‐level medal aspirations, and to consider the potential for Canoe Sprint to be competitive across multiple events, and to win more than 1 or 2 Olympic medals per cycle in the future.
