Australia's best canoeing medal hopes
15:50 AEST Tue Jun 26 2012

Australia's leading kayak and canoe medal prospects for the London Olympics:

MEN'S FLATWATER K4 1000m - The four-man kayak crew of Murray Stewart, David Smith, Jake Clear and Tate Smith produced Australia's best result at last year's world championships in Hungary by taking silver and threatening a huge upset of Germany before being overhauled near the line.

ALANA NICHOLLS (flatwater K1 200 and 500) - The Perth 26-year-old won her maiden World Cup K1 500 title last year before finishing fifth at the world titles. She's continued her rise with World Cup medals in both distances in the past month but looks best suited to the longer distance where she'll challenge German world champion Nicole Reinhardt.

MURRAY STEWART (flatwater K1 1000) - Manly hotshot Stewart, 25, has usurped Beijing gold-medallist Ken Wallace as Australia's best paddler and is mixing it with the best in the world. He came second to Canadian world champion and Olympic favourite Adam van Koeverden in the last World Cup regatta in Moscow.

JESS FOX (K1 slalom) - Just 18, Fox is a junior world champion and has already enjoyed senior success in the non-Olympic C1 on the whitewater. The daughter of world champions Richard and Myriam, the Sydney student is a K1 smokey but the best chance of Australia's four-person slalom team.
