Olympic Games silver medallist Jess Fox has performed to script at the Australian Canoeing Open in Penrith, winning the K1 gold medal with ease.

Fox, the current dual senior and under-23 world champion, dominated the final, finishing 4.49 seconds ahead of fellow Australian Alison Borrows on Sunday.

The 2013 Australian Open champion Katerina Kudejova of the Czech Republic finished third.

"The K1 was a really good race. All of the Aussie girls are paddling really well and it was good to see some good international paddlers out here with the Germans, Czechs and the French in the mix in the finals and Luuka (Jones)," Fox said.

"To put down a really good run like that even though I made a mistake at main wave, all in all the speed is there and the technique was quite good so I am happy with that."

Rosalyn Lawrence won the C1W gold medal, 4.20 seconds ahead of Fox.

Lucien Delfour won the K1M final, 1.89 seconds ahead of Czech kayaker Jiri Prskavec.

Delfour was pleased with the win which also saw him complete a clean sweep of the selection trials.

"It is actually the first time I have won the title, I have been trying for six years now so I am pretty stoked," he said.

Delfour recently received his Australian citizenship and asked whether he thought it was an omen, he responded with "Nah mate".

"I have been training really well and pretty hard this year and I think that is the reason why I have won today," he said.

Frenchman Denis Gargaud Chanut won the C1M final ahead of Western Australian Kynan Maley.
