Slalom day officially starts the competition at the European Championships in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Earlier this afternoon, during the first manche, the 30 teams competing drew the first lines among 12 gates in Neretva river: 8 greens and 4 challenging reds. After a calmer first section, where rhythm and coordination were the key, the main rapid in the central part displayed 3 upstream gates in narrow eddies (gates 7 9 10) where the technique decided the final rankings.

The second manche tonight changed the provisional afternoon results, since the teams pushed everything under the stars.

The best line has been drawn by Slovakia who won the men category among 16 teams: with 2 clean runs and no touches they scored the best time overall of 158.54. Silver to France 1 with 161.22 (one touch) in the second manche and third place for Italy 2 who leaded the first round with their best time of 161.80.
