Guildford’s Liam Heath claimed bronze in a photo finish in the defence of his Olympic men’s kayak single 200m title.

Liam, who has now won medals at three consecutive Games, set an Olympic-best time of 33.985 seconds in qualifying.

He told BBC Sport yesterday (August 5): “I was maybe a bit hesitant off the start and didn’t reach my potential in terms of peak speed.

“I am still happy with the performance. It is hard to put into words. It is what you work towards to be at your best for these events.”

In 2019 the Olympic winner, a member of the Wey Kayak Club, presented Sport Guildford Awards at the newly opened Guildford Cricket Pavilion.
