According to commentators, she nailed the second half of the course, securing a gold medal with a time of 105.04, more than three seconds faster than anyone else.

“She is a wonder woman on the water. What a performance!” Channel 7 commentator David Culbert cried.

Jess’s father Richard told Channel 7: “What happened in the K1 final shattered her.

It’s unbelievable. It’s the C1 event, the first time in the Games. It’s the race she had to win.

She was magnificent. It was such a tough course.”

This is her fourth Olympics medal. She won a bronze medal on Tuesday in the kayak event, the same event for which she scored Silver in London in 2012. She won the Bronze in the same event in Rio 2016.

Tweets came in fast after her win, showing how proud Australia is of her.
