Freestyle Finals are Underway

Today are the finals! Team USA is charging into the finals with 17 of the 40 competition slots. Dane Jackson is the only athlete competing all four categories; Squirt, C-1, OC-1, and K1. The first final has been decided with USA’s Elaine Campbell taking 5th in Women’s Squirt. As the day goes on the metals will start accumulating. The US is the favorite in the Men’s Squirt with Clay Wright and Dane Jackson placing 1st and 2nd in semi finals.

Jr. Men come out swinging.

Put two more medals on the tally for the US. Hunter Katich and Alec Voorhees take 1st and 3rd split by Thomas Richard of France.

This year, all of the winners will partake of a (nonalcoholic) Champaign ceremony on the island for fans! Alec is congratulating Thomas while Hunter fetches the bottle!

C-1 US Sweep!

C-1 dominance is the only way to describe the US in this World Championships. First place changed several times but was never occupied by anyone other than a US paddler. The final: Jordan Poffenberger, Tad Dennis, Dane Jackson with the US sweep. Jordan takes gold in both C boat categories.

Jordan Poffenberger going huge and team USA pictured below.

The local wi-fi has seized up so I'll briefly update that Adriene Levknecht took bronze.

Still on shoddy network. An predicted by many, Dane Jackson has taken gold in Men's K1 with his second ride.
