Franklin provides British gold at canoe slalom world cup

Mallory Franklin completed a golden double and teammate Joe Clarke won the men’s K1 final on a triumphant day for British canoe slalom in front of an enthusiastic home crowd at Lee Valley on Sunday.



Franklin added the C1 title to her K1 win from 24 hours earlier, while Clarke overcame some mid-race difficulties to win the men’s K1 at the opening ICF canoe slalom world cup of the 2019 season.

The wins were also important for both athletes in their pursuit of British Olympic selection for Tokyo 2020. Franklin had to dig deep in her final after teammate Kimberley Woods posted a fault-free 107.45.

Franklin also raced without penalties to record a time of 106.82.

“It’s not my ideal, going off last in the final,” Franklin said.

“It’s hard for me to put to bed all the different results, and you see the kind of run that Kim put down, I’ve put quite a bit of work into trying to quieten that and focus on my own results.

“At the end of the day I paddle because I enjoy it, so that’s what I try and focus on.”

World champion Jessica Fox had a rare defeat, picking up two gate touches to finish third in 113.62.
