Fox earned a bronze medal competing in the K1, but she first needed to fix the nose of her kayak. How did she do it? (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In a TikTok video, Fox showed that she used a condom to hold a carbon mixture on the nose of the kayak, according to Yahoo Sports.

As I’ve predicted, none are coming out, but I didn’t expect one to be used to fix a kayak!

When competing at the highest level of sports, you often need to be adaptable. Being able to adapt is what separates the losers from the winners.
However, I don’t think anyone expected a condom to be needed to save a kayak. Yet, that’s exactly what happened and it clearly worked very well.
Props to Fox for her quick thinking and using the tools around her to win the day. You just love to see it!
