Dame Lisa Carrington claims K1 500m world championship title for third time

Five-time Olympic Games gold medallist Dame Lisa Carrington is once again a world champion, securing her third world K1 500m title.

In Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in the early hours of Sunday morning (NZ time), Carrington was in a league of her own. Made to work hard for the gold by the strong headwind, Carrington ultimately paddled across the line in 1min58.69sec – more than a second faster than second-placed Annamaria Govorcinovic of Croatia, with Germany’s Jule Hake third.
