In the final race, Fox finished third behind 2019 world champion Veronika Vojtova (CZE) and hometown hero Eva Tercelj (SLO).
But Fox wasn’t the only Aussie on fire in the new Olympic discipline, Noemie Fox and Tim Anderson also securing semi finals berths. Noemie Fox was unlucky to miss the final four, bowing out in the semi finals stage to finish fifth overall, Anderson finishing eighth.
