The dual Olympian qualified sixth fastest for the K1 final at the 2018 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships but as each of the top five qualifiers took to the water to beat her time of 102.06. 

It was quite a shock for Fox when no one could beat her time.

"I'm quite emotional, shocked. I had a great run until the bottom section where almost help apart but I'm so happy I was able to hold that together and escape what could've been a terrible mistake," she told ICF media.

"Look to come away with the win today I'm so happy," Fox said.

Her sixth individual world title puts her clear of a crowded leaderboard, which includes her father Richard who has five individual titles for Great Britain.

While Fox has an added advantage of racing both K1 and C1 events, there is no denying the dominance she has on the water. She has won four of her six titles by four seconds or more.

Her win helped exercise some the demons she had from her bronze medal at the Rio Olympics.

"I guess with Rio I had a little bit of unfinished business after the Olympics. I was a bit frustrated with my paddling and I just wanted to come here and be free and really unleash in that final," Fox said.

On Monday morning AEST Fox will be going for another World Championship title after qualifying second fastest for the women's C1 final. She is unbeaten in the discipline this year, having won all five World Cup races during the 2018 European summer.

If she takes gold, this will give her seven individual world titles, and eight titles overall if you add a team gold, which would take her past her mother, Myriam Fox-Jerusalmi, as the most successful female athlete of all time.
