STA, 28 August 2022 - The success of Slovenian canoeists was complete on Sunday, as Eva Terčelj and Ajda Novak won the second and third places in women's extreme slalom, a new Olympic discipline, at the Canoe Slalom World Cup in Pau, France. Jessica Fox from Australia, the reigning world champion of the discipline, won the race.
This is the first time that two Slovenian women competitors were on the podium. In a nail-biting finale, Terčelj crossed the finish line as second and Novak as third.
Slovenian canoeists Luka Božič and Benjamin Savšek bagged the second and third places in a white water slalom even in Pau earlier today.
The last white water slalom World Cup event of the season will be held next weekend in Seu d'Urgell.
