Sydney Whitewater Festival – C1 Women’s Slalom Winners Run and Results
2019 Sydney Whitewater Festival, Penrith (Australia) – Top 3 C1 Women’s Slalom Winners Run and top 10 Results.
Australia’s Jessica Fox continued her incredible dominance of the women’s canoe slalom at the season’s opener in Sydney. Fox, a dual Olympic medallist and 2018 double world champion, took home the win in the women’s C1, continuing her unbeaten run in the boat class she won five World Cups, the overall World Cup as well as World Championship gold in last year. This weekend she also won a silver medal in the women’s K1 on Saturday.
Fox wrapped up a full weekend of racing against the world’s best paddlers at Penrith Whitewater Stadium winning the women’s C1 in a 103.52 clean run and +0.33 ahead of Brasil’s Olympian and 2018 Extreme K1 World Champion Ana Satila. Sister Noemie Fox also finished on the podium and only +1.21 seconds behind (104.73).
“This the first event of the season for me and to take a win was really cool,” Fox said.
“It was a fast race, I saw the times before starting so I knew I had to lift my game a little bit. I had a penalty on that main wave, so I really had to make sure the rest was perfect.
“This is a really awesome place to come and bring the family and see the best in the world. There are 300 athletes here from over 30 countries, so it’s world cup standard. It’s actually bigger than a world cup and you don’t get that every day in Penrith, so we are pretty lucky to have it.”
