, blitzing the field with a stunning, clean run that was more than three-and-a-half seconds quicker than anyone.She posted a time of 105.04 seconds, good enough to beat Team GB’s Mallory Franklin and Germany’s Andrea Herzog in third.Fox marked herself as the woman to beat in the final having gone fastest in the semi with a time of 110.59 seconds on one of the toughest whitewater courses seen at the Olympics.
Franklin set down a better marker, however, in the final with a time of 108.68.But that ultimately proved to be no match for 27-year-old Fox, who showed no external signs of the same nerves she had on Tuesday in a clinical run.Later, she would admit that she threw up before the race due to her nerves.
After the event, her father and former Olympian Richard Fox, who was nothing but composed throughout his daughter’s runs all week while in commentary for Channel 7, finally broke down.“Oh my god. That’s so, so good. I said, ‘Make your choices, own your choices with confidence and control’, and she did,” he said before choking up. headtopics.com
“She made good choices. Find the flow, feel it and focus. And the focus was so strong. She kept breathing and she held it. Yeah. That’s beautiful.“It’s relief. It’s, like, yeah. You know, she’s such a good paddler. Such a good person.”In any other Olympics, Fox would have been coming home once again without gold draped around her neck.
But the Tokyo Olympics gave her a second bite at the cherry by including the C1 class for the first time.Her father went on to describe how important the C1 victory was, saying that the result of the K1 final had “shattered” his daughter.“It’s unbelievable,” he said. “It’s the race she had to win.
“I think what happened in the K1 final shattered her. To come back from that to recompose herself. She wasn’t at her best in the heats — that was so good.”Fox is the first paddler to win an Olympic medal in the canoe slalom event.In victory, she ensures she won’t go down as an Olympics underachiever, having claimed seven individual golds at World Championships but none at the quadrennial event.
Instead, she will go down Australian sporting icon — and the greatest paddler of all time.Gold, Silver, Bronze - Aus SHINE in pool | 00:56 Read more: FOX SPORTS Australia »
