Slovenia, Czech Republic, Great Britain and France all won team gold medals at the European Canoe Association (ECA) Canoe Slalom European Championships in Ljubljana.


Urša Kragelj, Eva Terčelj and Ajda Novak paddled superbly in the women's K1 class to secure on home rapids at the Tacen Whitewater Course on the Sava River to win the first Slovenian continental gold since the event was first held in 1996.

They posted a collective time of 122.60sec to finish 3.08 clear of Spanish trio Irati Goikoetxea, Maialen Chourraut and Marta Martínez.

Lucie Baudu, Marie-Zélia Lafont and Camille Prigent of France were 6.79 behind the winners in third.

British trio Kimberley Woods, Mallory Franklin and Eilidh Gibson successfully defended the title the same three won last year in the C1 category.

They clocked 153.24 to finish 4.08 clear of Germans Andrea Herzog, Lena Stöcklin and Birgit Ohmayer.

Tereza Fišerová, Monika Jančová and Eva Říhová took Czech bronze in 158.48.

It saw him finish a mammoth 2.71 seconds in front of Swiss silver medal winner Thomas Koechlin in the Slovenian capital.

Kuhnle claimed a first European title today after a previous best of silver in 2010.
