With an outstanding performance on day 2 of just 7 penalty points, England leap-frogged the other teams in contention to take an incredible Team Gold with 25 points on the River Sava, Slovenia. The team had two sections wins (Steve Sanders and Mark Downes) a second (Bob Nudd) and a 3rd (Roger Marlow). France were second overall on 30 points, with overnight leaders Hungary dropping to bronze with 37 points.
England’s Mark Downes section win with 6.694kg left him on a total of just 3 penalty points, giving him Individual Gold. Roger Marlow took Individual Silver, an agonising 68g away from the second in section that would have seem him pip Mark to the title on weight.
