Jess Fox fulfils her dream winning Olympic Gold
Jess Fox takes home Olympic Gold in the debut Women’s C1 Canoe Slalom event at Tokyo 2021.
Lampoon Group represented athlete, Jess Fox, campaigned to have the Women’s C1 included in the Tokyo Olympics which has paid off extremely well after securing the elusive gold medal. Jess has now won a medal at all three Olympic games that she has attended with a complete collection of a gold, silver and two bronze medals.
Her perfect final run gave her a finishing time of 105.04, beating her semi-final time earlier that day by a huge five seconds and knocking Mallory Franklin to second place.
Following her success, Jess said:
“It was just about do what you know how to do, be you, and I think we make a great team so I’m super proud to share it with [my mum] and she is my biggest inspiration so to have both [my mum and sister] here and dad at home – I can’t wait to show him this medal.”
Having already earned a bronze medal in Tokyo’s K1 event, Jess has officially wrapped her incredible Olympic campaign.
As the greatest paddler of all time, Jess had nation-wide support throughout her whole Olympic journey, with her podium appearances touching the hearts of so many Australians.
The Lampoon team is so proud of Jess’ hard work, resilience and showing what it means to be a great human. With a bright career still ahead, the team is excited to see what the future holds as Australia’s golden girl.
