The Olympic slalom canoe program was standardized in 1992, with no change in the men’s and women’s programs from 1992-2016. There were four slalom events, kayak and Canadian singles for men, men’s Canadian doubles, and women’s kayak singles. Tony Estanguet defended his title in Canadian slalom singles. He would finish ninth in 2008 but came back in 2012 to win a third gold medal in the event. France and Slovakia split the four gold medals in canoe slalom, each adding an additional medal, a silver for Slovakia and a bronze for France.
The whitewater competition took place at the Olympic Canoe/Kayak Centre in the Helleniko Olympic Complex. This was constructed specifically for the 2004 Olympics and, through 2020, is the only Olympic whitewater venue that consisted of saltwater.
