Kayak duo claim bronze medal
Great Britain enjoyed even more success at Eton Dorney as Liam Heath and Jon Schofield won a bronze medal in the men's K2 200m.
Ed McKeever had earlier won gold in the men's K1 200m, and Heath and Schofield gave the home fans more to smile about as they finished third with Yury Postrigay and Alexander Dyachenko of Russia taking gold.
The Russians, the quickest qualifiers in the semi-finals, won in a time of 33.507 seconds, while Raman Piatrushenka and Vadzim Makhneu of Belarus won the silver.
In the women's K1 200m, Jess Walker, 22, from Hampton Hill, London, made the final but finished in seventh place.
The race was won by New Zealand's young kayaker, 23-year-old Lisa Carrington. The men's 200m canoe sprint was won by Ukraine's Yuri Cheban.
Today's results take Britain's medal haul in canoeing to four, achieving their pre-Games target. The medals come after Etienne Stott and Tim Baillie won gold in the canoe slalom last week, while David Florence and Richard Hounslow took silver in the same event.
Schofield told BBC1: "That was a long race. I didn't think we were going to make it to the line.
"The last day had been horrible. We weren't happy with the heats and we were really worried coming into this.
"But Liam showed that he goes quiet, he thinks, he stews, but he comes out with the right reaction. That start was amazing and we just held it."
