Fox lands world canoe medals
AUSTRALIAN Jessica Fox has continued her strong form at the canoe slalom World Cup by claiming a gold and silver medal in Markkleeberg, Germany.
The two- time Olympic medallist won silver behind German Ricarda Funk in the women’s K1 on Sunday, a day after winning gold in the C1.
The haul follows her C1 gold medal in Augsburg a week earlier.
Fox lost time in Sunday’s K1 during the mid- section of the Markkleeberg course, finish- ing 2.25 seconds behind winner Funk.
“I’m very happy with second place, a little bit disappointed because I lost a bit of time on gate nine, but still happy to back up after yesterday and make the podium in K1,” Fox said.
“I took a few more risks in the final today, and they kind of paid off.
“Gates six, seven and eight, I opted for a tighter line and it was faster, but then I lost time after that and just fought to the finish.”
