    According to the official website canoeicf, Poland’s women’s K4 finally broke through for their first ever world championship gold medal. In a surprising result, former women’s K4 powerhouses Germany, Hungary and New Zealand all finished out of the medals, with Australia taking silver and a young Mexican crew winning their first world championship medal. 

    “We have been waiting for a gold medal for 13 years, so it’s been a lot of time,” Pulawska said.

    “Now we are really happy. Our next stop is the European championships so we hope we can be strong again. We are super motivated to win this.”

    “A picture worth more than words. We have the first-ever world champions in K4 500 meters! Karolina Naja, Anna Puławska, Dominika Putto, Adrianna Kąkol. And 7 minutes earlier, unexpected gold in C1 200 for Alex Koliadych!”,  journalist Filip Górecki published on Twitter.
