Mallory Franklin

Slalom - Podium

Mallory Franklin is a women’s C1 and K1 slalom canoeist and in 2018 became Great Britain's most successful female canoeist winning a record eight individual and three team medals in a season.

2018 started in style winning C1 silver at the European Championships in Prague - her fourth individual European medal and went on to win the C1 Team title for a third successive time. She quickly backed this up with C1 bronze at World Cup 1, C1 and K1 silver at World Cup 2 - her first ever World Cup medal in K1. At the World Cup Final in La Seu D'Urgell she won bronze in K1 and silver in C1 to come second in the overall C1 World Cup Standings. She topped off a stellar season at the World Championships in Rio, winning two individual and two team medals. She won silver in both C1 and K1 and retained her C1 Team World title with teammates Kimberley Woods and Bethan Forrow, with a bronze in the K1 Team. 

In 2017 she became C1 World Champion in both individual and team events. This topped a season where she also became U23 World Champion in the same two events, won two C1 World Cup silver medals and also became a regular contender in K1 finals.

Outside of canoeing Mallory is studying Sports Therapy.
