There was no Olympic hangover for four Rio gold medallists as they won titles on the final day of the ICF Sprint Canoe World Championships in Racice, Czech Republic, on Sunday. Liam Heath, Lisa Carrington, the Hungarian women’s K4 500 and the German men’s K4 crew all won gold in front of a capacity crowd and in perfect paddling conditions.
The first day of finals at World Championships in Račice is over and what a day it was. There was only one downside from my point of view. That was the short shower during the morning program, but even that was rather refreshing and didn`t thin the crowd.
German powerhouses Sebastian Brendel and Tom Liebscher have broken the hearts of a capacity Czech crowd by storming to victory in their C1 and K1 1000 finals at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships in Racice on Saturday. In both cases the Germans chased down Czech paddlers who had brought the crowd to their feet. Brendel snatched victory from Martin Fuksa, while Liebscher flew home to tip out Portugal’s Fernando Pimenta and local hope Josef Dostal.
New Zealand and Hungary have drawn first blood in the battle for women’s K4 500 supremacy, qualifying directly for this weekend’s finals at the 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships in Racice, Czech Republic. In one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the program, New Zealand finished ahead of Germany in their heat, while Hungary proved too strong for France in their race. You can read more HERE.
