Subject to mitigating circumstances, team selections will be made at an International Panel meeting following completion of the 2019 Senior World Championships. The announcement of the 2020 Olympic team will be made in conjunction with the BOA following confirmation by BOA of acceptance of Team GB nominations. Athletes are obliged to keep any notifications of selection or non-selection in respect of the 2020 Olympic Team strictly confidential until authorised by the British Canoeing Team Leader.
As Olympic selection will be conducted from athletes already selected to the 2019 or 2020 Great Britain senior team through the published policy, no additional performance standards apply beyond those specified in the 2019 and 2020 senior team selection policies.
