The World Best Times recognised by FISA for Olympic events are those recorded on regatta courses which have held either World Championships, Olympic Games or World Cups since 1980.


Page created Aug 99, last updated 25 Aug 14.  
Times in Gifu 2005 have been removed, in view of the noticeable stream running.
Junior times (set in Plovdiv 1999) are shown here where they are faster than Senior best times, but Senior best times are also shown.  

This list is unofficial, please send any corrections to me .
