The Polish women finished off the race in the C1 semi-finals. Alexandra Stach took 28th place with 56 seconds on penalty kicks, Claudia Zolinska scored 54 seconds and was 30 seconds in. Jessica Fox unexpectedly missed the final, who missed the goal and finished only in the semi-finals in 26th place. In the final, in the absence of the favorite, other players fought for medals. Turns out, Elena Abel is the best. The German scored 99.03 points, including two seconds from the penalty shootout. The British call was preceded by Mallory Franklin by 31 percent. The podium was completed by Czech Gabriela Satkowa (102.50).

He triumphed thanks to a flawless run, as the medalists scored two seconds off penalty kicks. The second is Slovakian Alexander Slavkovsky and the third is German Franz Anton.
In the afternoon, an intense slalom competition was held, in which Michau Pasiot was close to the medal. Pole would probably have made it to the finals, finishing fourth last. He was followed by Britain’s Joseph Clark, Finland’s New Zealander Butcher and Austrian Mario Leitner. Alexandra Stach was eliminated in the qualifying round.
