She has been competing in all 4 with the exception of the 2019 Worlds because of Olympic qualification system, so it's not that crazy from her. I am more worried about that I have no idea how strong she is or NZ in general. For all I know they can win 4 gold medals in women's kayak or not win anything.

I must say I had doubts about how much we will use this new rule, but it looks like Hüttner (our coach) isn't afraid about that our athletes will be tired by the last few days. It will be interesting to see if Germany will also do something similar or they will submit one boat per event.

Slovakia will participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Canoeing Sprint competitions with 5 athletes,

an all men team,

an all Kayak team.

 

The country never missed the Canoeing Sprint competitions at the Olympics since the independence. but clearly dropped in numbers of quotas in the sport and will send its smallest canoe sprint team ever to the games. Failing even to qualify a single female and any Canoe paddler this time is considered very very disappointing..

Atlanta 1996 (7 Athletes), Sydney 2000 (12), Athens 2004 (10), Beijing 2008 (7), London 2012 (8), Rio 2016 (7)

 

Slovakia won 4 medals in Canoeing Sprint in history since the first appearance as an independent country. (3 Silvers and 1 Bronze) 3 of them won by the mens K4 (2004 - Bronze (Picture below), 2008 - Silver, 2016 - Silver (Picture above and decoration by our IOC member Danka Barteková), the Slovak Canoeing Sprint leadership. The last fourth medal, the very first one in this sport was won by Slavomír Kňazovický in Atlanta 1996 a silver in nowadays non existing M C1-500m.

 

 

This time it will be a 5 male Kayak paddler affair.

2 Debutants and 3 olympic experienced athletes, one of them becoming even the new all-sports Slovak record holder.

 

Peter Gelle the 37years old former K2-1000 world champion will compete only in the M K1-1000m event, a quota he earned himself by finishing 4th at the 2019 World Championships, This year it did not look well for him to be selected for the games, as his form was not great during the early season nationals but the federation at the end decided to give him a chance considering visible improvement of shape in the last weeks. Peter is going to his 3rd Olympics in a row after London and Rio.

 

Denis Myšák (26 years old) will return to the games afer his debut in Rio. He Is a Rio 2016 Silver medalist in the K4-1000m, he was one of the key players of our crew there. this time, this event is no more in the Olympics program and was replaced by a 500m distance, but Denis showed his ability to adapt quickly to also shorter distances and changed quite impressively from an endurance specialist to a great sprinter. Denis was not part of the crew which won the K4 quota for Tokyo, he was injured in 2019, but showed his exemplary determination and mental strength and returned this year in a superb form beating everybody of the K4 crew prospects repeatidly, it was so clear wins that the federation and coaches had no questions about his place in the K4 crew anymore already this April.

 

Samuel Baláž (23 years old) and Adam Botek (24 years old) are both Debutants at the Olympics, both will form the K2 crew for the 1000m and both are also irreplaceable members of the K4 crew. Fun fact, they were no supposed to compete in the K2-1000 in Tokyo, but their results this season at the European Championships and World Cups were so surprisingly good (Finished in podium in every race !), that it would be a shame to not try this event in Tokyo too. But the main focus will remain obviously in the K4. Even in different distance, this event is still the most important for our athletes and fans in this sport.

 

Baláž, Myšák and Botek were 3 of the four K4 crew members, which have their spots in the boat secured from results at the Nationals and international events this year basically by early May. The only question was who would be the fourth in the game. It was a battle between the young prospect Csaba Zalka and the veteran Erik Vlček, and it was in a direct 2 face to face races, in both of them, by small margin but still in both race triumphed the extremely experienced...

Erik Vlček (39 years old) Slovak paddling legend. What can I say more about this man that people did not knew yet ?

42 Medals from big competitions, 10 times World Champion (7 Times in K4 !) 3 Times Olympic medalist in K4 (2x Silver 2008 & 2016, 1x Bronze 2004) but also 4th in the 2000 K4 and 6th in the 2012 K4.

Yes you counting correctly. Erik will compete at his 6th Olympics in a row !

By this 6th Olympic appearance he will become the new :SVK National All-Sports Olympic record Holder. No other Slovak athlete male or female has participated at 6 olympic Games (Summer or Winter) in all history (including Czechoslovakian era and the "pre-historic" Austria-Hungarian era as well).
