ISA World Champs Day 5 Recap: Aussie Dominance Continues As Prone Races Deliver Excitement

Jordan Mercer ISA World Paddleboard ChampionAnother great day in Peru with Day 5 of the ISA World StandUp Paddle and Paddleboard Championship producing plenty of excitement on the water.

The almighty Team Australia kept their unbeaten streak alive by taking Gold in both the men’s and women’s prone paddleboarding “Technical Course” race. Both races served up a lot more excitement than was possibly expected, with Golden Girl Jordan Mercer being pushed literally right to the beach by Anna Notten, while Brad Gaul made a slight mistake and lost the title to team mate Lincoln Dews.

The Aussies also sent a paddler into each of tomorrow’s SUP surfing finals, meaning the team could possibly do 12-medal clean sweep of this event. Tomorrow is the big finale with five Golds up for grabs, but in the meantime check out today’s race results plus photos of the action…
