Inside UNLEASHED x Uganda – Final Results

What a phenomenal week of competition, progression, fear and stoke! Unleashed x Uganda has come to an end, congratulations to all of the athletes that competed in what was by far the most revolutionary event ever held on the Nile. With the worlds first Dead Dutchman boater x being the pinnacle moment of fear amongst the competitors, the event also raised the bar on what is possible on rapids such as Itanda and sent the beloved and soon to be destroyed Nile Special wave off in style!

Dane Jackson and Darby McAdams retained their titles as Unleashed champions and local hero’s Yusuf Basilarwa and Amina Nakirya cemented their status as some of the best big water kayakers in the world with second place finishes. Canadians Kalob Grady and Katie Kowalski rounded out the top three in the mens and womens. There where some surprise results throughout the event and unfortunately several athletes had to withdraw from the event with injuries. Still at the end of the week of competition, everyone was unbelievably stoked!
