Noemie Fox, the sister of canoe star Jessica Fox, has won silver in the extreme slalom World Cup event with the discipline to make its Olympic debut in 2024.
Australia's Noemie Fox is stepping out from the shadows of her Olympic canoe champion sister Jessica, making a name for herself in the extreme slalom event.
The 25-year-old won silver overnight at the ICF World Cup in Poland in the discipline which will make its Olympic debut in Paris in 2024.
While older sister Jessica won gold on Saturday in her pet race, the K1 slalom, Noemie showed her talent in the extreme slalom final.
She finished second behind Martina Wegman of the Netherlands, with Ukrainian Viktoriia Us taking the bronze medal.
"This year it's stepped up a whole other level and the quarter finals are feeling like a final from the get go," Fox said.
"So I'm taking it step by step and we'll see what happens (for Paris 2024).
"It was definitely a battle out there. Last week in Prague I finished fourth, and it's good to be in the final again but get a bit of bling."
The third ICF World Cup will be held this weekend in Slovenia.
