Craig 10th in Slalom Final

August 2, 2012

Ireland’s Hannah Craig finished 10th in the women’s K1 finals at Lee Valley White Water Centre this afternoon.

Craig performed very well to qualify from the semi-finals earlier in the day but was last of the finalists after posting a time of 127.36 after picking up 6 penalty points.

Emilie Fer of France won the gold medal. Fer produced a perfect run down to set a winning time of 105.90 seconds, beating Australian teeenager Jessica Fox who took the silver medal, one place better than her mother Myriam achieved at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Spain’s Maialen Chourraut was third.
