Gold, silver and bronze medals
Pernille Brandstrup Knudsen took Denmark's first and her own first worldchampionship medal, when she after an excellent final in K1 1000 finished in third place on Saturday morning.
The Dane remained in the lead throughout the final, which was won by Hungarian Alida Gazso and with British Lizzie Broughton in second place.

Twice before it has been silver medals and once a bronze medal, but on Saturday morning Emma Aastrand Jørgensen stood at the top step of the podium after the World Cup final in the K1 200 meter on Bagsværd Lake. The Olympic bronze medalist at the distance controlled the final from the first roof and left no doubt that she wanted her World Cup gold in front of an enthusiastic home crowd.
The silver went to Anna Lucz from Hungary and the bronze to Russian Natalia Podolskaia.

Simon Schuldt-Jensen and Morten Graversen ended Saturday's finals at the worldchampionship at Bagsværd Lake with a surprising, but very well-deserved silver medal in the K2 1000. Throughout the final, five boats were fighting for the medals, but in the final phase, the Danes proved to have the right race and strength for the great second place after Sweden. Hungary took the bronze medal.

The fourth World Cup finalist, René Holten Poulsen, finished in seventh place in K1 1000 m.

Earlier in the day, Denmark had two boats in the B-finals. Here, Julie Frølund Funch and Bolette Nyvang Iversen were number seven in the 500 meter dry kayak, while the four kayak for men with Rasmus Alsbæk, Philip Bryde, Magnus Sibbersen and Victor Gairy Aasmul rowed to the finish in fourth place.

Danes ready for finals
René Holten Poulsen and Victor Gairy Aasmul ready for for Sunday’s World Cup K2 500 meters final after a semifinal with a steely final sprint over Canada and Sweden.

Emma Aastrand Jørgensen and the ladies’ four kayaks took the direct way over the distance in Friday’s introductory heats. Emma Aastrand Jørgensen doubled up on World Cup finals, tomorrow she will row 200 meters, as she inevitably won her initial heat in the K1 500 meter. Only the winner took the direct route to Sunday’s final, and the Olympic bronze winner in the distance controlled the race from the first meter and was in the finish over two seconds ahead of Czech Anezka Paloudova and Portuguese Teresa Portela.

Pernille Brandstrup Knudsen did like Emma Aastrand Jørgensen, she also doubled up on World Cup finals. On Saturday she can look forward to the final over 1,000 meters of K1 and on Sunday to the final in the 500 meter four kayak.
As a replacement for Emma Aastrand Jørgensen in the four kayak, Pernille Knudsen steered the initial heat from the front, Julie Frølund Funch, Sara Corfixsen Milthers and Bolette Nyvang Iversen to a final third place. The quartet laid out fresh and led the first 200 meters, but was then overtaken by Poland and Russia.

Julie Frølund Funch and Bolette Nyvang Iversen were also in action in the semi-final over K2 500 meters, where the pair redeemed a B-final on Sunday via a seventh place.

A B-final was also made for the men’s four kayak over 500 meters. In the semifinals, Rasmus Alsbæk, Philip Bryde, Magnus Sibbersen and Victor Gairy Aasmul rowed to a sixth place.

The last Dane in action on Friday was Nicolai Winther in the K1 500 meter. The Dane rowed a nice initial heat and finished in second place after the German Moritz Florstedt. The first six from the preliminary heat advanced to tomorrow’s semifinals.
