Richard Hounslow and David Florence win canoe slalom silver in remarkable one-two for Team GB
Richard Hounslow and David Florence are celebrating a superb Olympic silver medal after Great Britain completed a remarkable one-two in the canoe slalom C2 category at the Lee Valley white water centre.
Harrow-born Hounslow and his partner from Aberdeen were last to go in the two-seat event after qualifying fastest from the semi-finals earlier this afternoon.
The Loughton-based pair produced a terrific effort but they were unable to overhaul the time set by Great Britain team-mates Tim Ballie and Etienne Stott, who won an amazing gold.
The medal more than makes up for the disappointment Florence and Hounslow suffered in their individual events earlier this week after both failed to make it into the finals of the C1 and K1 categories respectively.
