Norway's Eirik Veras Larsen won gold today in the kayak sprint as Tim Brabants, defending his Olympic crown, finished eighth.
World champion Adam van Koeverden finished second to claim silver, while Max Hoff from Germany won the bronze.
Brabants, from Surrey, came in to the Games struggling for full fitness following a serious tendon injury.
Drawn in lane one nearest the grandstand, the 35 year old had the support of the home crowd but fell well behind Canada's Van Koeverden as he surged in to an early lead.
But with 250 metres to go in the individual 1000 metre kayak sprint, Larsen edged in to first place to claim gold.
