Hi, my name is Jessica Fox. My discipline is Canoe/Kayak Slalom. My friends call me Foxy. I was born on 11 June 1994 in Marseille, France. My special talent is I'm still searching for it. My philosophy of life is live believing anything is possible and dream believing you can do it. The most important person in my life is my family. My favourite food is chocolate. My favourite music is anything with a good beat.


Canoeist Jessica Fox was born into Olympic royalty in Marseille, France on June 11, 1994 to parents Richard Fox and Myriam Fox-Jerusalmi – both Olympians from England and France respectively.

After moving to Australia at the age of four, Jess grew into a talented athlete and by 13 was beating competitors five years her senior. Before long she was a five-time Junior World Champion and paddling in her first Olympics. A silver medal at the London Olympic Games in 2012 and Jess was instantly touted as the next international superstar. As for the next goal? The field for the 2016 Rio Olympics had better watch out for this unwavering athlete.
