“Dual Olympic medallist and 2018 double World Champion Jessica Fox took home the win in the women’s C1 on Sunday, continuing her unbeaten run in the boat class she won five World Cups, the overall World Cup as well as World Championships gold in last year. This weekend she also won a silver medal in the women’s K1 on Saturday (16 February 2019).

“The 2019 Canoe Slalom Australian Open as part of the 2019 Sydney International Whitewater Festival, was a successful return to international competition for Fox following her historic season last year when she wrote canoeing history and became the most successful individual canoe slalom paddler of all time.

“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.
