2013 Pyrenees Cup
18 year old Jessica Fox has demonstrated her determination to prove doubters that her silver medal London accolade was no fluke, with a dominant display of whitewater paddling at the 2013 Copa Pyrenees Cup over the past week and a half.
The Penrith dynamo dominated, winning five gold medals and a silver across the three legged competition.
Racing began in La Seu d’Urgell, Spain just over a week ago, before the talented field of paddlers competed in Foix, France mid-week, with competition concluding down the natural flowing waters in Pau, France on Sunday.
Fox completed a clean sweep of victories in the womens C1 category, whilst in her Olympic discipline, the K1, Fox produced victories in Foix and Pau, after Spanish paddler Meritxell Rodriguez edged Fox by 0.08 seconds to win the first event in La Seu d’Urgell.
"I really enjoyed racing in Pau, the course is great, the atmosphere was awesome and I'm happy that I could build and deliver a good race in the final when it matters and especially at the end of a tough week of racing!"
"Overall I learnt a lot and have a few things to work on now before revisiting Seu for the world cup and Pau the next time."
The results capped off the perfect start to Fox’s European season, with the NSWIS paddler now set to return home to Australia, before heading back overseas for the ICF World Cups, which begin in Cardiff, Wales on 21-23 June.
