Fox reigns supreme at Krakow Slalom World Cup

Australia’s Jessica Fox has continued her rampaging start to the 2018 ICF Canoe Slalom season with another World Cup gold medal on Saturday

Fox won both C1 and K1 gold on the opening weekend of the World Cup season, and then followed up with K1 gold in Krakow, Poland, on Saturday



Jess Fox had allowed her competitors a glimmer of hope when she was only able to qualify 17th fastest for the K1 semi-finals, but then put in a sizzling run to qualify second fastest for the final.

She finished the final in 91.51, 0.89 seconds ahead of surprise silver medallist, Lucie Baudu of France, with Italy’s Stefanie Horn finishing third.

“It’s such a difficult course, and quite hard on the arms,” Fox said.

“I didn’t go as fast as my semi-final, but I was clean and tidy, with no major mistakes and a sprint to the finish. I’m so thrilled to win again. I can’t believe it.”

Germany’s Ricarda Funk had a rare appearance outside the top three. Although she was easily the quickest paddler on the course in the K1 final, Funk picked up four seconds in penalties to leave her 2.41 seconds behind Fox in fifth place.

Saturday's results mean Fox is a clear leader in the overall K1 World Cup standings
