Australia's Jessica Fox won the women's canoe and kayak races at the final International Canoe Federation (ICF) Canoe Slalom World Cup of the season to seal the overall titles in Vaires-sur-Marne at a venue set to be used for next year's Olympic Games.

Fox is the Olympic canoe and world kayak champion and considered by many the greatest paddler of all time.

This was her fifth consecutive World Cup series crown in the K1 and a fifth in her career in the C1.

In the kayak discipline, Fox could even afford a two seconds penalty on the 16th of 21 gates as she earned victory in 100.78sec, finishing 1.59 seconds clear of Austria's Corinna Kuhnle and 1.95 ahead of Poland's Klaudia Zwolińska.

The World Cup final at the Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium, a new facility built to host canoeing and rowing events at Paris 2024, offered double points for athletes in the overall standings with 120 available for a win.

Fox's third victory from five helped her to take overall gold with 308 points, followed by Germany's Elena Lilik who was fourth on the day with 277 and Zwolińska with 262.

In the canoe discipline, Fox has enjoyed an even better season, and a fourth win from five earned her a first overall World Cup title since 2019.

She dominated the final with a time of 106.04, finishing more than four seconds clear of Gabriela Satková of the Czech Republic with 110.08 and nearly six clear of third-placed Mallory Franklin of Britain with 111.97.

Fox earned overall victory with 334 points, followed by Kimberley Woods of Britain with 222 after a fifth-place finish and Ukraine's Viktoriia Us, who was 11th in Vaires-sur-Marne with 217.

This was the third time Fox, winner of the Olympic gold medal in the C1 at Tokyo 2020, has lifted both overall titles in the same year.

She claimed it had been "a near perfect season, but there are still things to improve on and things to work", and "it was great to get that first look and that first feel on the Paris course" for next year's Olympics.

In the men's kayak, Vít Přindiš of the Czech Republic earned overall gold, despite not winning an event on the circuit.

He continued his consistent performances with a second-place finish in Vaires-sur-Marne, clocking 91.78 behind French home favourite Titouan Castryck in 89.20.

Přindiš was joint-second at the event as Britain's Jonny Dickson matched his time.

It helped him finish with 304 points, followed by Giovanni De Gennaro of Italy with 271 and Olympic champion Jiří Prskavec of the Czech Republic with 252.

The other overall medallists finished ninth and seventh, respectively, at the World Cup final.

A fourth-place finish was enough for Luka Božič of Slovenia to leapfrog Matej Beňuš of Slovakia to the top of the men's canoe standings.

Raffaello Ivaldi of Italy made it back-to-back World Cup wins in 95.90, followed by Germany's Franz Anton in 96.18 and Spain's Miquel Travé in 96.83.

Božič was fourth in 97.69, which took him onto 270 points, two clear of Beňuš who was eighth in 100.16 after two seconds penalties on the seventh and 13th gates.

Three-time world champion Joe Clarke of Britain sealed the World Cup crown in men's kayak cross, a discipline set for its Olympic debut at Paris 2024.

That was despite a 13th-place finish after missing out on the final, as he finished with 189 points.

France's Boris Neveu climbed to second overall with 171 points after an impressive victory in the final, staving off Finn Butcher of New Zealand, Felix Oschmautz of Austria and Přindiš.

Timothy Anderson of Australia completed the overall podium with 161 pointsafter losing in his semi-final.

Woods took the women's kayak cross title with 229 points, despite finishing second to New Zealand's Luuka Jones in the final.

Jones was second overall with 204 points, and a third-place finish from Fox in Vaires-sur-Marne earned her third overall with 194.

Nikita Setchell of Britain was the other finalist.
