Jessica Fox takes home double World Cup Gold in Prague
It was a huge weekend for Lampoon Group’s Jessica Fox, who won double Gold at the Prague World Cup, as well as being crowned the overall ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup series winner in both C1 and K1 events.
It is Jess’s fifth overall World Cup title in the Women’s C1, the boat class which will premiere on the Olympic program at the Tokyo 2020 Games.
The Women’s K1 victory marked Jess’ second consecutive overall World Cup win in the class she won Olympic Silver (London 2012) and Olympic Bronze (Rio 2016).
The 25 year old now heads to Spain for the World Championships and is determined to defend the C1 and K1 titles she won in 2018.
Jessica is a 7 x Canoe Slalom World Champion and has won a silver and bronze medal at the Summer Olympics. Her seven gold medals in individual events at the World Championships make her the most successful paddler, female or male, in the history of the sport.
