Fox on fire in Canoe Slalom World Cup

It took Jessica Fox less than one week to remind everyone just how good she is, the two-time Olympic medallist demolishing the field to win gold in the C1 at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup in Augsburg on Saturday. Fox, a three-time C1 World Champion, finished more than 10 seconds ahead of the next best paddler, and was one of only two athletes to complete the tough Augsburg course without any mistakes.

Gliders find bronze at Continental Clash

The Australian Gliders have finished with a victory at the Continental Clash, defeating Japan to secure the bronze medal and complete their European tour. On Thursday night, the Australian Wheelchair Basketball women’s team faced a Semi Final clash against Germany but after a quick start by the opposition, Australia struggled to get back into the contest. The Gliders trailed by nine at quarter-time and 15 at half-time but an impressive third term from the Gliders helped eat into that margin before they ultimately fell, 51-71.
