Day Four saw Dame Lisa Carrington pick up a tenth open World Championship title in Canada overnight.
Having not attended the World Championships last year, Lisa Carrington won the womens K1 500m final, her 3rd world championship title in this event.
This most recent win now sits aside wins in 2015 and 2019, runner-up finishes in 2017 and 2018 as well as two Olympic Gold medals and a bronze at this distance.
Carrington got out of the starting gate quickly as expected and continued to extend her lead down the course, where there was a slight headwind, finishing in 1.58.69, ahead of Croatia’s Anamaria Govorcinovic and Germany’s Jule Hake.

Earlier in the day, Carrington and her young K4 crew finished 5th in their 500m final, agonisingly close to the podium.
While Poland were clear ahead to take the win, a mere 0.6 seconds separated 2nd-5th placing.
In other events, Peter Cowan started the day with 8th in his Men’s VL3 A-Finaland the K4 men were 8th in the 500m B-Final.
To round out the penultimate day of racing, Ashton Reiser was third in his K1 500m C-Final and James Munro placed 9th in the K1 1000m B-Final.

Racing resumes at 1AM Monday and will be live-streamed on ICF’s YouTube channel, Planet Canoe.
