Campbell Walsh is hoping to paddle his way to glory in the kayaking at Beijing.

After winning a silver medal at the Athens Olympics, the 30-year-old is going for gold in China and lots of people think he's got a really good chance.

He's had a great year so far, most recently taking the gold medal at the European Championships in May.

Campbell entered his first race aged 11 and now races in a specially-made boat that he developed himself.
