Martina Satkova from the Czech Republic was the great winner of the last day at the 2013 ICF Wildwater Canoeing Juniors World Championships in Lofer by winning the K1 and the C1 Women Sprint Finals.
Her schedule today was very hard. Two heats and two finals at one day were a long programme, but the 14 years girl, one of the youngest at the whole championships, did it like an expierenced paddler.
„So many medals are really great“, said Martina at the end of the finals. „The K1 was very close and that is why, this victory is most valuable for me. Alltogether it were great championships for me."
First Day of Competition
The K1 women was dominated by Silvana Zimmermann (SUI). Five seconds in front of Tereza Brozova (CZE) she won masterfully gold. „Actually my feeling was not so good and I am a bit surprised by myself. My coach shout 500m before the finish line, that I am three seconds in front. That was gave a lot of self-confidence.“
The womens canadian-class is growing up. Alltogether nine participants were at the start line to fight for gold. In the end Martina Satkova from the Czech Republic was really unbeatable. With a lead of nearly 50 seconds she was in front of Chiara Carbognin (ITA). „Under 13 minutes is a very good result for me. But I am also a bit angry, because my boat damaged and got full of water. Without this damage it would be easier to paddle.“
