Kayaker Dane Jackson won the fourth event—a multi-stage, derby-style boatercross event down the Rio Futaleufú in Chile—to take the overall men's lead in the Whitewater Grand Prix. Jackson is trying to repeat as champion, but a number of other paddlers could still win the title. Katrina Van Wijk of Canada won the women's race. The video below offers a look at the boatercross results and the overall standings. There is one race left in the five-event competition.
