Sydney’s Fox sisters were both in fine form for Australia in the second round of the Canoe Slalom Women’s World Cup series last weekend in Krakow.

In the single kayak (K1) event, Jessica, 28, followed up on her first round gold medal in Prague the week before, by winning another one, this time edging Czech Tereza Fiserova in the final by 2.58 seconds.

But she missed out in the single canoe final, missing a late gate to finish fifth, while Noemie came ninth.

In the relatively new extreme slalom event – to debut at the 2024 Olympics – Noemie is proving a real contender.

It involves four paddlers racing on the whitewater course, off a jump ramp start.

In Krakow, Noemie qualified for the final, and finished second to Dutch paddler Martina Wegman to claim silver, ahead of Ukraine’s Viktoriia Us, and then Fiserova.

The third World Cup round starts on June 24 in Slovenia.
