STA, 8 May 2021 - Slovenian canoeists have been going from strength to strength, with silver for Eva Terčelj and bronze for Peter Kauzer at the European Canoe Slalom Championships on Saturday raising hopes for top positions at the Tokyo Olympics.

Terčelj is a world champion but the silver in the individual event is her first medal from a European championship.

Kauzer's bronze was even more welcomes in some sense, as it has also earned him a ticket to Tokyo, which Terčelj had secured before.

"There's absolutely no bitter aftertaste. I'm not dwelling on where I lost gold, I'm more than happy with silver," Terčelj said.

Kauzer, meanwhile, said he was almost as happy as winning gold given that he's now travelling to Tokyo.
