Gold for K2 Women!

K2 Women take gold in the 200m at Racice

Jamiee Lovett and Aimee Fisher absolutely smashed the competition in their K2 200m straight-final, winning in 37.835 seconds, over a second ahead of China (39.013 sec) and Argentina (39.902 sec).

Quick out of the blocks, the girls continued to gain metres over the race, easily leading the field all the way to the line. That said, China’s K2 Team had raced their K2 500m final only half an hour earlier, so it was an impressive effort to produce a solid performance.

Although the K2 200m is a not and Olympic event, the race offered a chance for the sportswomen to practice their mental toughness. Clearly the win will be a huge boost to the girls’ confidence going forward.

Other great races from Day One

The Men's K1 1000m Final looked every bit like an Olympic final, with the top athletes battling it. The home favourite, Ukrainian Josef Dostal lead strongly to take gold, followed by Max Hoff and René Polsen.

The Women's K2 500m Final was extraordinary – first and second coming within a whisker of each other, too close to call by eye alone. The Ukrainian team of Inna Hryshchun and Anastasiia Todorova won in 1:42.550, with the German K2 Team of Tina Dietze and Franziska Weber just +0.050 behind! The Serbian women took third, with the second German K2 team a close forth.
