Video: David Florence talks about winning his third World Championship Gold

LR Energy-sponsored David Florence has won Gold at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships to become the sport’s World Champion once again. In front of an international crowd, David took the lead and held on to it, despite a last minute bid from Slovenian Benjamin Savsek, who was just 0.4 seconds behind the winning time of 94.32.

 
David said, "It feels absolutely amazing to have won a third world title. To win the World Championships with a home crowd was just incredible. With the race factoring towards Olympic selection for Rio as well as being the Worlds, it meant there was so much riding on the competition. I was really pleased to be able to hold my final run together under the pressure and deliver a winning run. Very happy indeed to be World Champion again!”
