Video - Bronze for Brabants in 500m

Tim Brabants claimed his second medal of the Beijing Games by claiming bronze in the men's K1 500m final.

The 31-year-old, who won gold in the K1 1000m on Friday, finished just behind Australia's Ken Wallace and Adam van Koeverden of Canada in a close finish.

Only four tenths of a second separated the three medallists as Wallace of Australia won with a powerful finish.

In the women's 500m, Britain's Lucy Wainwright came seventh in a race won by Ukraine's Inna Osypenko-Radomska.

Osypenko-Radomska just came home ahead of the 43-year-old Italian Josefa Idem, who adds to the silver she won in Athens and the gold she collected in Sydney.

Germany's Katrin Wagner-Ausgustin won bronze.

Wainwright, 30, could not fully recover after a poor start and ended up with the same finish she managed at the Athens Games.

"It wasn't my best race so I'm a bit disappointed," she said. "I came here wanting to go one better than Athens and I've come away with the same, but later down the track I'm sure I will realise what I have achieved.

"Top five would have been good and the form I was in I thought I'd achieve that. It seems to get harder and harder at every Olympic Games, there are so many good girls out there. But at the end of the day I was in an Olympic final."

In the men's race, van Koeverden of Canada made the early running but Wallace reeled him in with just 100m to go.

Video - Brabants happy with second medal

Brabants, who won Britain's first ever canoeing gold medal when he stormed to victory in the 1000m on Friday, has only started competing in the 500m relatively recently but the doctor did win gold in the event at the European Championships last year.

"When you cross the line you don't know where you are, I am not looking across and just giving it everything down that last 200m," he said.

"It would have been great to have done the double but coming into the race I was more jaded and these guys are world-class athletes.

"I had no idea whether I was first, second or ninth until I crossed the line and looked across, I had no idea where I finished.

"I looked at the board and it said I was silver then it dropped me down to bronze.

"But I have to be happy. I came out to these Olympics with the hope of getting two medals - one of them gold -and that is what I have done. It has been fantastic. I feel very lucky to be here."
