The 2021 International Canoe Federation double world champion Noïc Garioud had a weekend to remember in Budapest, Hungary claiming three gold medals in all three disciplines of the 2nd ICF WORLD CUP of the year in a commanding performance.
The Frenchman hailing from the town of Nouméa on the island of New Caledonia picked up the sprint and long-distance gold medals on the opening two days and then finished the weekend with another win in the technical race.

Garioud won sprint and technical gold and a silver in the long-distance race at last year’s ICF SUP world championships at Lake Balaton in Hungary, and has maintained his outstanding form in the lead-up to this year’s ICF SUP WORLDS in Gdynia, Poland. This is his fourth victory in six races under his new Starboard colors this year.
In the women’s events, Italy’s Caterina Stenta, another Starboard team racer, also enjoyed a strong weekend, taking gold in the women’s long distance and women’s sprint events. There was a good hometown win for Slekta Reka from Hungary in the women’s technical final.
Australia’s Kaelen Lockhart took silver behind Garioud in the men’s long-distance and a bronze in the technical race, while Bulgaria’s Andrey Kraitor won bronze in the long distance and silver in the sprint.
The Budapest competition was the second ICF SUP world cup for the 2022 season, with a third event scheduled for Oklahoma in August, ahead of September’s world championships.
