Hunter Smoak of Ames, Iowa races in the K1 men's Novice/Expert class on the slalom course of the 45th Annual Missouri Whitewater Championships. Smoak placed fifth in the class and first in the downriver K1 Men's Novice class. The Missouri Whitewater Championships, held on the St. Francis River at the Millstream Gardens Conservation Area, is the oldest regional whitewater slalom race in the United States. Heavy rain in the days prior to the competition sent water levels on the St. Francis River to some of the highest heights that the race has ever been run. Only expert classes were run on the flood level race course. Novices who chose to race were re-classified as "novice experts" to recognize their achievements.
