|Taljat/Božič just 2 houndreds away from gold|
The newest place in kayak slalom world cup, Cardiff whitewater center brought us the 1st race of 2012 Kayak Slalom world cup. While most of the attention is pointed to London Olympics, the races in Cardiff were a great intro to the world cup racing, with most of the attenders focused completely to the event.
While Saturdays racing was quite affected by the strong winds, Sunday was almost perfect. Maialen Courraut (ESP) took the gold in K1W event, C2 Taljat/Božič (SLO) were just an inch away from the victory. In Saturdays racing Peter Kauzer (SLO), Vavrinec Hradilek (CZE) and Campbell Walsh (GBR) took the places 6 to 8 in K1M finals.
