2015 ISA Worlds || Day 2 || Women’s Long Distance Race

 

The US earned its first gold medal at the 2015 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship yesterday, when champion SUP racer Candice Appleby crossed the finish line in front after a fierce battle with runner up Lina Augaitis (Canada) and third place finisher Terrene Black (Australia).

Augaitis, champion of the 2014 ISA Worlds Distance Race, was a favorite going into the 20km flatwater race as Appleby is typically more recognized for her technical course racing style. The battle remained tight between the top three finishers for the first five kilometers of the race, before Augaitis and Appleby broke free from Black and set out on a neck-and-neck battle that lasted until the fourth and final lap. Then, the American champion persevered with what seemed to be a second wind, pulling ahead to cross the finish line more than two minutes ahead of Augaitis.
