Fox is paddling royalty. Her parents were slalom world champions – her father, Richard, won 10 world titles for Great Britain, while her mother, Myriam Fox-Jerusalmi, won eight world titles and an Olympic bronze medal for France.
Still only 27, Fox has been winning slalom events since she was a teenager, coached by her mother. Over the past decade, she has won just about all there is to win in the sport: four junior world champion crowns, eight under-23 world titles, a Youth Olympics gold medal, 10 senior world championships. Silver in London. Bronze in Rio. Bronze in Tokyo.
