Three athletes share the lead in the Whitewater Grand Prix with three races in the books. Last year's winner, Dane Jackson, Frenchman Eric Deguil, and Isaac Levinson of the United States have crowded their boats into the top spot with two races left to go. Levinson emerged victorious in the most recent event, a whitewater sprint on the Rio Nevados. Kayakers navigated down a long granite slide before dropping off a waterfall. Nouria Newmann of France took first for the women and holds the overall lead.
