Canoe/Kayak (has been featured as competition sports in the Summer Olympic Games since the 1936 Games in Berlin, although they were demonstration sports at the 1924 Games in Paris. There are two disciplines of canoeing in Olympic competition: slalom and sprint. Two styles of boats are used in this sport: canoes with 1 or 2 canoers and kayaks with 1, 2 or 4 kayakers. This leads to the name designation of each event. For example, "C-1" is a canoe singles event and "K-2" is a kayak doubles event)

Handball is one of five Summer Olympic sports in which the U.S. has never won an Olympic medal, and that drought will remain intact at the Tokyo Olympics. The U.S. men's and women's handball teams failed to qualify for the sixth straight Olympic Games as neither team earned a medal at the 2019 Pan American Games, the regional qualification event.
Field handball was a form of what is now handball and was played at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, but dropped after that. The sport is played on a grass field between 90 and 110 meters long, 55 to 65 meters wide. The field has two parallel lines 35 metres from the goal line, which divides the field into 3 sections; each section can have up to 6 players of each team. The goal area is a semicircular line with a 13-metre radius, and the penalty mark at 14 metres from the goal. The goal is 7.32 meters wide and 2.44 meters high. At the 1952 Olympics, field handball was a demonstration sport.
