Olympics 2012 canoe slalom: France`s Fer paddles to kayak goldLondon: Emilie Fer of France won the Olympic gold medal in the women`s kayak slalom Thursday.

Fer, a 2006 World Champion, stole the gold from 18-year-old Australian Jessica Fox after completing the course 0.6 seconds faster.

"I have some difficulty realising what has happened. I took some risks because I had nothing to lose and I knew I needed to go fast," Fer said.

"I`m delighted for France and for myself."

Fox, whose mother won a bronze in Atlanta in 1996, was ecstatic with second place.

"I`m only 18 and I`ve had such a great season so far and to cap it off with a silver medal at the Olympics is just a dream come true."

Maialen Chourraut, the 2009 world silver medallist champion from Spain, took the bronze one second off Fer`s time.

"This is the medal that I needed. This is for Spain," Chourraut said.
