The second day of the 2013 U23 and Junior Canoe Slalom World Championships is underway in Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia.
Australia continued its solid start to this year’s Worlds with three more Australian’s progressing to the semifinal stage.
The day began with the U23 K1 women’s and C1 men’s heats.
19 year old Jessica Fox bounced back from a missed gate on her first run to produce a clean second run, posting the second quickest time in the same event she won silver in at last year’s London Olympic Games.
Fox finished 3.62 seconds behind Czech favourite Katerina Kudejova who recorded the fastest time 107.67.
Penrith Valley kayaker Alison Borrows also advanced to the semifinal stage recording the 21st fastest time.
Melbourne’s Maggie Webster missed the top 30 cut in 45th.
The U23 men’s C1 heats followed with senior C2 canoeist Ethan Hodson progressing to the semifinal after recording the 25th fastest time, despite a gate touch.
There is still plenty of racing to come today with the junior K1 women’s and C1 men’s heats to be contested.
