Golden Weekend for the Slovakians at the 2nd ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup in Bratislava

 

The Slovaks know their sport well – Canoe Slalom. The team had a successful weekend on home soil by medalling in 4 of the 5 Canoe Slalom categories.  Heavy rainfall and flooding in the preceding week had people worried that the event may have to be cancelled. The organisers managed to get the event up and running and the second Canoe Slalom World Cup 2009 resulted in some fantastic races.

In the women’s K1, the impressive Elena Kaliska (SVK) 2 times Olympic champion, swivelled around slalom gates at a tenacious speed to beat Katrina Lawrence (AUS) for the gold medal. Jana Dukatova (SVK) had a good weekend taking the bronze medal.

 

Jana Dukatova (SVK) who entered as favourite in C1 women swept to victory in this relatively new event. Leanne Guinea (AUS) continued her good season with silver and (SVK) Dana Benusova won the bronze.  The women’s C1 event whilst in its infancy continues to improve from competition to competition.
