Tom Green Amongst Next generation of Sporting Stars to Get Gold Medal Advice

Paddle Australia’s dual 2019 U23 World Champion and up and coming canoe sprint talent Tom Green (QLD) is amongst five of Australia’s most promising young athletes who will benefit from the wealth of experience of our nation’s very best as a part of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame 2020 Scholarship and Mentoring Program.

The 20-year old is amongst this year’s SAHOF scholarship recipients and as part of the scholarship Green will be mentored by Olympic gold medallist Grant Hackett OAM.

“It is an honour to receive a SAHOF Scholarship and to have been recognised by my peers. Being mentored by Grant Hackett, a sporting great, is a privilege that will help make my sporting dreams a reality,” Tom Green said.

“The opportunity to learn from someone who has been there and who has experienced the ups and downs of elite competition and can share their lessons learned with me is simply priceless. I look forward to making the most out of this opportunity and I thank everyone involved for their consideration. I hope to one day be able to mentor others to help them chase their dreams no matter how big.”

Now in its 14thyear, the program is designed to help young Australians reach the highest levels of their sport, by providing encouragement and funding over a 14-month period.

“I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to help guide Tom through the challenges he faces as an athlete. Providing perspective through experience allows any athlete a greater chance of reaching their full potential,” Grant Hackett OAM said.

The five athletes chosen for 2020 include Tokyo Olympic skateboarding aspirant Hayley Wilson, featherweight boxer Jack Denahy, two-time world junior track cycling champion Luke Plapp, world under 17 water ski champion Sade Fergusonand under 23 kayak world champion Tom Green.

The five young athletes receive one-on-one personal mentoring by a current member of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame along with a $5,000 sporting expenses grant.

Mentors include Olympic gold medallists Libby Trickett OAM and Grant Hackett OAM, squash world champion Sarah Fitz-Gerald AM, surf lifesaving champion Kristy Munroe AM and Australian football legend Kevin Sheedy AO.

“What well deserved recognition of our up and coming paddling star Tom Green to be chosen for support through one of Australia’s most prestigious scholarship programs. Working with an athlete and role-model like Grant Hackett will be a great opportunity for Tom to continue to grow both as an athlete and as a person,” Phil Jones, Chief Executive Officer, Paddle Australia said. 

“The Sport Australia Hall of Fame scholarship tops off an amazing season for Tom. In an impressive last few weeks he has won two gold medals at the U23 canoe sprint world championships, made the K1 final in only his second senior world championships final and secured a quota place for the Olympic Games for Australia through his performance. We are confident that this scholarship will be a fantastic opportunity to progress his career even further.”

With one month to go until the Sport Australia Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Gala Dinner,the successful recipients will be presented their scholarships by their respective mentors on Thursday, 10th October 2019at Palladium at Crown, Melbourne.

Tom Green took home the U23 World Championships title in the men’s K1 500 as well as in the men’s K4 500 this year. He was also part of the K4 team of Lachlan Tame, Jackson Collins and Matt Goble, that secured an Olympic quota spot for Tokyo 2020 at the 2019 ICF canoe sprint world championships in August.

Double World Cup Crown and Double World Cup Gold for Jessica Fox

Jessica Fox on Sunday hung on by her fingernails to win a second gold medal at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup Final in Prague, and in doing so underlined her dominance of women’s canoeing by sealing her third consecutive overall C1 world cup title.

After Jessica Fox’s staggering, record-breaking results in 2018 it was hard to imagine she could repeat the performance in 2019. But the 25-year-old most successful female slalom paddler of all-time stepped up on the final weekend of the five-event world cup season, winning both the K1 and C1 gold medals, and successfully defending both overall world cup titles.

But she only just held on to win on Sunday, posting a time 0.04 seconds quicker than Great Britain’s Kimberley Woods in the C1. Czech Tereza Fiserova was third.

“I think every race has been pretty tough and challenging, and I think after yesterday’s win, it was such a big win for me, so I wanted to come back today and go through the process again and stay grounded,” Fox said.

“It wasn’t perfect, and it was a fight to the finish. My goal is always to put down my best runs, not win the overall world cup, that’s a bonus of doing consistent races.

“It wasn’t the perfect season like last year, but I’ve learned so much from every race that I’ve done. The competition in the C1 category is getting better and better, the girls are hungry and improving a lot, it makes me really proud to be in this category.”

Fox finished well ahead in the overall standings, finishing with 312 points to Brazil’s Ana Satila on 225 to make it three C1 titles in a row. Fiserova was third on 222 overall points.

It is her fifth overall world cup title in the women’s C1, the boat class which will premier on the Olympic program at the Tokyo 2020 Games.

Saturday’s win in the women’s K1 marked Jessica Fox second consecutive overall world cup win in the class she won Olympic silver (London 2012) and Olympic bronze (2016) in.

The two-time Olympian heads to La Seu in Spain now, determined to also defend the world championship C1 and K1 titles she won last year.

“I’m really happy to finish off this way, especially in the last world cup, it’s double points, it’s Prague, which is always really challenging, but there’s been an amazing atmosphere and I’ve really enjoyed racing,” she said.

“That’s what will keep me fresh and happy and hungry to keep training harder for the next couple of weeks. But I know the girls who might not have done as well as they liked here will be hungrier than ever for Seu, so I’m looking forward to getting back to Spain.”

Sister Noemie Fox also made it through to her first C1 final of the season, but picked up four gate touches to finish eighth overall.

Rosalyn Lawrence (NSW) just missed the final, finishing 12thin the semi-final.

“It’s always hard to pick if it is going to be a close semi-final or final, or if people will make mistakes, and unfortunately I was one of the ones who made mistakes,” Lawrence said.

In the men’s K1, both Lucien Delfour (NSW) and Daniel Watkins (TAS) picked up two second penalties which kept them out of the final. Delfour finished 15th, and Watkins 17th.

“There were plenty of small mistakes made during the run, so plenty of time to make up the time, but I was pretty happy to put together a solid run in the semi-final,” Watkins said.

“I would have liked to be in the final for sure. I guess I’ve just got to try and tune-in these last three weeks, and try and make those final changes to make the speed deliverable.”

The Australian canoe slalom team will head to La Seu d’Urgell next, where they will prepare for the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom & Wildwater World Championships (25-29 September 2019) with the event also doubling up as the first Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification event.

Double Glory For Jessica Fox On Penultimate Day Of World Cup Final

Jessica Fox described as close to her best form, as she broke through for her first K1 win of the 2019 season at the ICF canoe slalom world cup final in Prague on Saturday. The win also locked away her defence of the overall K1 world cup title she won last year.

After dominating the women’s K1 for much of the 2018 season, Jessica Fox has not been able to get back to the top of the podium in 2019. But the two-time Olympic medallist got it right on the challenging Prague course on Saturday to win by almost three seconds, with Brasil’s Ana Satila second and Slovakia’s Eva Tercelj third.

Fox said she felt like she was close to her best.

“I think so, I think today was really exactly what I was looking for,” she said.

“I’ve been training so well here, so I really wanted to put it together. It was just about getting that run out.

“Just to deliver that in the final, I was so pleased. That was the elation when I crossed the finish line. I’m really pleased with today, it could not have gone better.”

Fox was also rewarded for her consistency over the five-world cup series with the overall K1 world cup title, defending the crown she won last year.

She is now looking forward to taking this form into the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships and Tokyo 2020 qualification coming up in La Seu d’Urgell, Spain in a couple of weeks (25-29 September 2019).

“It’s always a little confidence boost,” she said.

“It’s been a long season, but now all the world cups are done, we have a couple of weeks off, so I’m happy to finish the world cups on this note, and looking forward to being back in Seu.”

On Sunday, Fox will also have the chance to defend her 2018 world cup crown in the women’s C1. Fox currently holds a 47-point lead heading into the final day with the C1 semi-final and final on the schedule and double points awarded.

Australia’s only other competitor on Saturday was Steven Lowther, competing in just his second ever semi-finals of the men’s C1.

Two gate touches pushed the 22-year-old to 25thoverall, but the Western Australian was still happy with his final week in Europe of his first season on the Senior World Cup team.

“It was not the best, but I’m happy with how I approached the race, and there was some good stuff in there,” he said.

“If I cleaned up some of the touches I think it would have been a really competitive time, so I’ll take a lot of confidence away from it, and build onto it in the future.

“I knew there were no real big expectations on me, so I wanted to just go out there and do the best I could and learn from it. Even from the start of this season to now I’ve improved a lot, so if I keep that going I’m confident I can get some good results in the future.

Australia will be well represented on the final day of competition in Prague, with Jessica and Noemie Fox joined by Rosalyn Lawrence in the semi-finals of the women’s C1, and Daniel Watkins and Lucien Delfour setting out in the men’s K1.

Solid Day One For Australians At Canoe Slalom World Cup Final in Prague

The Australian canoe slalom team has made a business-like start to the ICF canoe slalom world cup final in Prague, but are ready to bring out their best this weekend.

Defending K1 and C1 overall world cup holder Jessica Fox (NSW) once again led the way for the Australians, qualifying for both the K1 and C1 semi-finals on a challenging Prague course, while Lucien Delfour (NSW) and Daniel Watkins (TAS) are set to take on the best in the men’s K1.

Noemie Fox (NSW) and Ros Lawrence (NSW) also qualified for the women’s C1 semi-finals on Sunday, but missed out on progressing to the next round of the K1.

In the men’s C1, WA’s Steven Lowther enjoyed one of the best results of his career, qualifying for Saturday’s semi-finals on his second run, but Watkins, with two missed gates, and Ian Borrows (NSW), with three gate touches, both fell short.  Tim Anderson(NSWalso missed out of the next round after a 15thplace in the second run of the men’s K1.

Jessica Fox said it was a challenging day.

“It was a solid morning, but not so great in the K1 on the top section, but I felt good in the C1, so happy to end qualification day in both semis,” she said.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what the course will be tomorrow, because it’s super technical here and it’s always a challenge racing here in Prague.”

Unlike a lot of her opponents, Fox has not missed any world cups this year. But she said she still feels fresh.
“The body is good, we’ve been training pretty hard in that gap between the world cups. It’s always a long season because our world championships are always so late, but I enjoy it, I like to do all the races, and if I wasn’t doing them I’d just be sitting on a course somewhere watching a race.”

Delfour was 16thfastest in the men’s K1 and progressed straight through to the semi, but admitted it had been hard to bounce back after winning silver in Markkleeberg last weekend.

“I actually felt quite flat on Monday and Tuesday, I suppose from all the paddling on the weekend,” Delfour said.
“But apart from that I’ve been feeling okay this week. I was not super happy with the run in general today though.”

Tasmanian Watkins bounced back from two disappointing runs in the men’s C1 and a troubled first run in the K1 to post the quickest time on the second run late on Friday, booking his place in Sunday’s K1 semis.

“It was a very long and arduous day, really up and down,” Watkins said.

“By about an hour before my second run in the K1 I was pretty spent mentally and physically, but I was happy to get some good feeling this afternoon and qualify through to at least one semi-final.

“I started to feel more optimistic just before the final race, but it definitely takes a bit of a toll mentally after a run, it takes about half an hour to reset.”

Watkins missed last weekend’s world cup in Markkleeberg.

“It’s a little bit tricky, you kind of get in a good flow doing race after race each week. It’s good to have the opportunity to go and work on that stuff, but you need to start again and reset like you would going into world cup one,” he said.

Steven Lowther enjoyed one of his best career runs, finishing seventh on his second C1 run to book himself a place in Saturday’s semi-final action.

“First one on the senior team circuit for the year, and last one of the season so nice to pull it off,” Lowther said.

“I was a bit unsure about my time at the finish line, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be enough. I lost a lot of time on the last two up gates, so I was a bit concerned. But now that I’m through, I’m very happy.”

Ros Lawrence finished 19thon her first run in the C1 to go straight through.

“It’s always good to make it through, I snuck through in about 19thso I wasn’t wasting any energy,” Lawrence said.

“In C1 I felt okay. I made a couple of big mistakes that cost me a lot of time. It’s pretty disappointing not making it into the semi of the K1, but I’m looking forward to the C1 semi.”

Noemie Fox qualified in 17th for the C1, and said it was a tough run.

“It was a struggle, I find Prague really hard because the gates just come at you and you have to be really agile and adaptive,” she said.

“I struggled a bit so I’m so relieved to go through on the first run. In kayak, I felt solid but I’m just too cautious and lacking the speed. I’m kind of glad I got a practice run for the C1.”

Racing continues on Saturday, 7 September, with the women’s K1 and men’s C1 semi-finals and finals.

Race for world cup slalom glory wide open ahead of Prague final

With just over two weeks to go to the canoe slalom season highlight and Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification event, the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships (24 – 29 September, La Seu d’Urgell, Spain), all eyes will be set on Prague this weekend for the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup Final (6-8 September 2019). 

Heading into this weekend’s final in Prague, the race for individual 2019 world cup canoe slalom titles remains wide open with double points up for grabs in what promises to be a thrilling finale to the five-race world cup season. 

All of the 2018 champions are still in the running to defend their titles, including Australia’s Jessica Fox,the reigning women’s C1 and K1 title holder, who is currently leading the C1 and sitting fourth in the K1.

Fox, who earned the title of the greatest female paddler of all time with a record-breaking 2018 season, finished last weekend’s canoe slalom world cup four in Markkleeberg, Germany with a silver (K1) and a bronze medal (C1) and is looking forward to returning to the course she won her first world title on.

“I like Prague and it’s such a cool course. I won my first world title there in 2013 and it’s always nice to go back there and the Czech are always so welcoming, so friendly and nice and they always put on an amazing show so I can’t wait to see what they have in stall for us for the world cup final,” Fox said.

The 25-year old has had a challenging world cup series this year, but still managed to consistently finished on the podium in most of the events.

“Last year was obviously the dream season, the perfect scenario and this year was more difficult. The courses were always really challenging and I didn’t put down some of my best runs and the girls were really good. The level is always rising and in a pre-Olympic year that’s to be expected as well, but I was happy to be on the podium last weekend and consistently on the podium. Obviously winning the gold is the goal but the process is what’s important too,” Fox reflected on the last four world cups.

Racing starts in Prague on Friday and Fox, who is the winner of last year’s women’s K1 world cup crown, will be heading into the event in overall fourth.

Following a silver and a bronze medal this season, Fox sits on 158 points and 22 points behind Austria’s Corinna Kuhnl, who sits at the top of the leader board on 180 points. Germany’s world cup four winner Ricarda Funk follows 15 points behind Kuhnl in second with Slovenia’s Eva Tercelj ranked third and with 120 points available for the winner in Prague final rankings are still wide open.

Fox is in a better position to win her third consecutive women’s C1 world cup title, holding a commanding 47-point lead heading into the final weekend. Fox has had a win and two thirds this year to accumulate 192 points, with Brazil’s Ana Satila sitting second on 145 points. Austria’s Viktoria Wolffhardt is third on 136, just ahead of Germany’s Andrea Herzog on 134.

In the men’s K1 and with 120 points available for the winner in Prague this weekend, technically any of the athletes currently sitting in the top 20 could take gold. Australia’s Lucien Delfour, on 83 points, picked up his first world cup medal, a silver, on the weekend and currently ranks 20thCzech Jiri Prskavec, currently leading the K1 standings on 199 points.

A theoretical chance is also still there for Daniel Watkins (TAS) who is ranked 15thin the men’s C1 on 79 points with Slovenian leader Luka Bozic holding 187 points.

The Australian team in Prague is completed by Noemie Fox and Rosalyn Lawrence who will join Jessica Fox in both the women’s K1 as well as the women’s C1. Daniel Watkins will also compete in both men’s events with Tim Anderson joining him and Lucien Delfour in the K1. In the men’s C1 Ian Borrows (NSW) and Steven Lother (WA) complete the Australian line-up.

First place this weekend carries with it 120 points, second will pick up 110, while third is worth 100 points. All athletes finishing in the semi-finals at least will get double points.

The canoe slalom world cup final in Prague also includes the extreme slalom world championships with Noemie Fox and Australian Paddle Team’s coach and former national team canoe slalom paddlers Julien Biellaut qualifying on Wednesday in the women’s and men’s K1 events and progressing through to Sunday’s 1/8 (Men’s Extreme CSL) and 1/4 (Women’s Extreme CSL) finals.
