Editor’s note: Each sport on the Rio 2016 Paralympic programme will have a dedicated week of featured content published on the IPC’s website. The IPC begins this series with six months to go until Rio 2016 (7 March) and will run until September’s Games, helping the public understand more about the 22 sports being contested in Rio.
Para-canoe will be contested in the Lagoa Stadium, at the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, which is located in the southwestern part of Rio. The venue will also host the Olympic and Paralympic rowing races, and the Olympic canoe sprint events.
The Lagoon sits in the heart of the city, with the Tijuca National Forest, Christ the Redeemer and several mountains in the background.
This lagoon is in Copacabana, a famous neighborhood widely-known for its beautiful beaches, and, at the same time, one of the four clusters the Paralympic Games will be split into.
Para-canoe competitions will take place 14-16 September.
