There was absolutely the loudest atmosphere at 2018 European Senior Canoe Slalom Championships in Prague in K1M final. Fans were cheering and pushing forward every kayak on the water, not just Czech competitors.
First final race at the ECA Canoe Slalom European Championships 2018 in Prague brought two medals for domestic Czech teams in C2M category. Despite 2 seconds of penalties Jonáš Kašpar and Marek Šindler are Europe Champions, bronze medal goes to Ondřej Karlovský and Jakub Jáně. Robert Behling and Thomas Becker from Germany reached second place, less than one second behind winners.
K1: Ricarda Funk: “It was quite tough; the course is very tricky, especially in the middle part. I think for the semifinals I need to attack the course a little more. Of course I want to qualify into finals.”
C2: Ondřej Karlovský: „To be honest, I’m not satisfied very much with the performance. Kuba may agree with me. It didn’t slide so smooth on the water, it cost us a lot of power but finally we have qualified and that’s important.” Jakub Jáně: “First gates weren’t good and we couldn’t get into that. We need to deal with that.”
