Forth Canoe Club’s David Florence warmed up for next month’s slalom World Championships with another podium finish at the World Cup Finals in Augsburg, Germany

The double Olympic silver medallist was second in Saturday’s C1 singles final, also finishing runner-up in the season-long Cup rankings, just 15 points behind Slovak Michal Martikan.

The Scot and Rich Hounslow then claimed bronze in yesterday’s C2 doubles final, less than a second down on French duo Gauthier Klauss and Mathieu Peche, who matched compatriot Denis Gargaud Chanut’s C1 victory.

“It was great to finally get on the C2 podium after so many near-misses this season,” said Florence who will defend both world titles in Maryland next month.
