The current 2021 European runner-up distributed her strength brilliantly and tactically rowed the race in which Australian Alyssa Bull won the world champion title, completing the course in 4:27.65 minutes. Hungarian Eszter Rendessy won the silver 1.31 seconds behind the winner.

Anamaria Govorčinović stayed in fifth place until the halfway point, but when approaching 250 meters from the finish line, she moved into third place and managed to defend her spot until the finish. Govorčinović came in 5.96 seconds behind the new world champion. 

Govorčinović became the world runner-up in the 500-meter race on Saturday. 

Croatian canoeist Vanesa Tot returns from the World Championships in Halifax with sixth place in the 500-meter singles race and eighth in the 200-meter race. The Croatian Olympian from Slavonski Brod only had half an hour to rest between the two races on Sunday. She first started in the 200-meter race, and when she realized she could not compete for a better finish, she decided to save some strength for the 500-meter race. 20-year-old American Nevin Harrison was named the world champion in the 200-meter race for the second time in her career. She also won the Olympic gold last year in Tokyo. Tot was 3.37 seconds behind Harrison. In the dead race for silver, Spaniard Maria Corbera beat Lin Wenjun by one-hundredth of a second. Wenjun thus settled for the bronze medal. 

The new 500-meter world champion is Ukrainian Ljudmila Luzan, who finished behind Vanesa Tot in the 200-meter race. Canadian Sophia Jensen took silver, 87 hundredths of a second behind the winner, while Chilean Maria Maillard took bronze (+2.09) and finished fourth in the 200-meter final. In her second competition, Vanesa Tot was also in the fight for fourth place but ultimately crossed the finish line in sixth place, 7.51 seconds behind the winner.
