Mallory Franklin stormed to silver in the women’s K1 on day two of the Canoe Slalom World Cup in La Seu, Spain. Paddling last, she recovered from an early touch on gate six to put down a run of 93.58s which was enough to take second behind Australian Jessica Fox who broke the 90-second barrier to take top spot.
David Florence collected his second men’s C1 silver medal in three World Cup races after surging onto the podium on the last day of action in La Seu. The two-time world champion looked like he might claim gold as he sat in first place with just one paddler to go, but Spanish home favourite Miquel Trave pipped him to the win by 0.32s.
The 2016 Olympic champion earned bronze in the men’s K1 with a run of 96.33s to climb to sixth in the final World Cup standings overall. Having qualified quickest from Friday’s heats, Joe was last to go in the semi-finals and a time of 99.41s was enough to book his place in the final in eighth spot.
