Well I never thought I would be so happy with a race where I came 5th!
This afternoon we had the A Final of the K1 1000m. It was a very strong tail wind which made the conditions a little tricky with the waves in the last few hundred meters. I managed to get away with just the one brace stroke!
Adam Van Koeverden of Canada took line honors in a 3.25.725, Tim Brabants of Great Britain was 2nd in 3.26.535, Eirik Veras Larsen of Norway was 3rd in 3.26.977, Ken Wallace in 3.27.661 and I was 5th in 3.28.091 – 2.4 seconds behind the winner which was a step in the right direction after being 4.5 seconds back in Duisburg.
In the 200s Steve Ferg and Erin Taylor both progressed through to the A Final tomorrow.
Steve and Mike had a great K2 1000 to make the podium within 1.1 seconds of the two top French crews. One of them being the 2007 World Champions.
