Redemption for Australian canoeist Jessica Fox, securing her second World Cup victory
Jessica Fox has claimed her second World Cup victory in less than a week at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup in Prague.
Fox secured a gold medal triumph at the Tokyo Olympics in the women's C1 canoe slalom event at the Kasai Canoe Slalom Centre course, beating reigning Olympic champion Maialen Chourraut from Spain, as well as Germany's Andrea Herzog.
Now she has backed that up with another World Cup gold.
The Australian was the fastest qualifier in the women's kayak on Thursday and backed up that form to also place first in Friday's semi final.
Then in a performance which emulated her 6.51s victory in the women's canoe final last week in Augsburg, Fox put in a near-flawless run in the final [98.95s] to claim the gold with a 4.63s margin over Germany's Ricarda Funk.
