Six-time Olympic champion Cusack still competed with Dóra Bodonyi in Tokyo and finished third in the 500m, while five-episode gold medalist Erika Sipes Medvichki finished just behind them. The latter missed the World Cup and Bodoni was unable to prepare for the match due to his illness, so a new duo was formed.
The unit has only been able to train together a few times in recent weeks, yet it delivered a convincing performance in the preliminary round, through which only the winner reached Saturday’s finals simultaneously. The Belarusian defending duo, Volha Hudzenka and Marina Litvincsuk, were also on the field, but the Hungarians put on a show of strength, instructing everyone to one advantage.
“I think the Belarusians would be our biggest opponents, but it was a comfortable track.” He said Cebes Tamara.
“Conditions are better than yesterday, in terms of the weather, but from an organization and organization point of view it looks like an amateur competition.” He said Cossack Danuta, Which this time starts only in team ships, which is unusual for him.
“Each of them gives you an extra load because when you get into the water, you’re totally alone in those 20 minutes. That’s why I need to focus less now, but of course that doesn’t mean I’m taking my numbers seriously. That’s fine now.” He said about her.
And both revealed that they are very much looking forward to the end of the tiring season, when, in addition to the domestic competitions, there have also been European Championships, Olympic Games and the World Cup, and they are already calculating how many tracks they have to go before they can finally let go and relax.
Compared to the Olympics, the men’s kayak group changed as well – behind Pence Nadas, Balint Kopasz, Peter Gall and Kolos Sismadia, who were seated in the boat – which also had to finish in pole position so as not to have to start in the middle race by the final Saturday . In the middle of the 500-meter distance, the Serbs were still ahead, but the second 250-meter was clearly in the hands of the Hungarians, who finally won the race 27 seconds before the Czechs, who were also leading.
“After the first 100 metres, I felt like our speed was stronger than the others, I was so confident in the guys and myself that we can handle this and even be able to start. Luckily, it happened that way, and I felt like everyone really wanted that win, that’s why I think we managed to win.” – Assessed by the CEO, Pence das.
In the afternoon, two more songs debuted at the Tokyo Olympics, which ended 40 days ago, three years from now, but they will not be on the program in Paris: instead of 1000 meters, men’s doubles will compete in the French capital at altitude 500 meters.
This time the top three in the K-2 1000m race made it to the final, and Tamás Kulifai’s kayak duo, Noé Bálint, was able to take advantage of the opportunity, reaching the finish line behind the winning Germans and the hosts Danes. In the sequel, dám Slihoczki, Ádám Kocsis two boats, behind the leading group, took fourth place, but it turned out later that they also made it to the finals, as many people slipped, narrowing the field to eight boats, ie not the middle of the race on Friday.
Thursday’s program was closed by the Hungarian side, Balázs Adolf, who took to the water in the first middle race of the 1,000m canoe race and had to close in between the top three in the final performance. The race was scheduled for 4:59pm, but it ended up being delayed over an hour only because the buses carrying the athletes broke down.
At the same time, the 22-year-old Olympian at Óbuda Ganz VSE does not seem to be bothered by this, as he finished in second place behind Belarusian Maxim Pjatru, as he showed a great and mature race and thus can also prepare for the final on Saturday.
On Friday, more World Cup preliminary and middle races will take place, and the finals will take place on Saturday and Sunday.
