China sealed a women's canoe and kayak double at the Asian Canoe Slalom Championships in the Japanese capital Tokyo through Huang Juan and Lu Li respectively to earn quota places at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Asian Games gold medallist Huang's dominance in the canoe final was such that she could afford two two-second penalties en route to a time of 114.85sec at the Kasai Canoe Slalom Centre, built for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Anastassiya Ananyeva of Kazakhstan was her closest challenger in 119.60, and Jie Yang of China placed third in 129.91.

Lu also picked four seconds in penalties in the kayak final, but it was enough for her to edge out Japanese home favourite Aki Yazawa by 0.42sec with her time of 107.52.

Chinese Taipei's Asian Games champion Chang Chu-han completed the top three in 115.32.

The double success for China earned the country the sole Olympic quota place available at the Asian Championships, after its athletes failed to qualify at last month's World Championships at Lee Valley in Britain.

The quota places are to be allocated to athletes by the Chinese Olympic Committee.

Hosts Japan enjoyed a double success in the men's canoe and kayak events.

Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medallist Takuya Haneda dominated the canoe final, and took gold in 99.05. including a two-second penalty.

Peng Zhang of China was second in 100.24. and Uzbekistan's Alibek Temirgaliev took third in 102.62.

Haneda's success sealed a Paris 2024 quota place for Japan.

His compatriot Yuuki Tanaka triumphed in the kayak final with a penalty-free 90.83 run.

Another Japanese athlete in Yusuke Muto completed his run in exactly the same time, but collected a two-second penalty so had to settle for silver.

Haoran Zhu of China earned bronze in 94.38.

China and Japan had a Paris 2024 quota place secured from the World Championships in the men's kayak event, so the spot from the Asian Championships went to Chinese Taipei, for whom Wu Shao-hsuan placed fourth in 95.62.

The team events were also dominated by China and Japan.

Japan won the men's kayak event in 91.99, more than eight seconds ahead of Uzbekistan, and the men's canoe title in 91.46, Uzbekistan again their nearest challengers but 1.09 further back.

China took the other team gold in 101.56 in the women's kayak, finishing 9.46 ahead of Japan.
