The Olympic program had experimented with canoe slalom events in 1972, but they did not become a permanent fixture until the 1992 Summer Games. France’s Franck Adisson and Wilfrid Forgues were the reigning World Champions, while Thomas Loose and Frank Hemmer of Germany had won the tournament in 1989. These duos, however, were 10th and 11th respectively after the first run, which was won by Scott Strausbaugh and Joe Jacobi of the United States. In the second round, both Miroslav Šimek and Jiří Rohan of Czechoslovakia, the 1991 World runners-up, and Adisson and Forgues posted higher scores, but the Americans did not wither to the challenge and managed an even higher score, securing them the gold medal, leaving silver and bronze to Czechoslovakia and France respectively. Loose and Hemmer also bettered their previous mark in this portion of the tournament, but they still sank to 13th in the final rankings.
