Olympic fibre in canoeing

Carbon fibre presents itself as the lightest, strongest and most anticorrosive material in the canoeing competition in the Olympic (and Paralympic) Games. The canoes competing in Rio, where Spanish athletes Maialen Chourraut, Saúl Craviotto, Cristian Toro and Marcus Walz have won golden medals, are manufactured with the same material used for Formula One cars.
