Canoe duos power through to final
Britain's canoe slalom team gave themselves a great chance of a medal today as both two-man boats qualified for the final.
David Florence and Richard Hounslow won the semi-final, while Etienne Stott and Tim Baillie qualified in sixth place.
The teams now go on to race in the final later this afternoon.
Both Hounslow and Florence failed to qualify for the finals in their respective singles events, but both teams pulled it out of the bag as they were watched by LOCOG chairman Lord Coe and Sir Clive Woodward, Team GB's director of elite performance.
Three-time Olympic champions in the C2 event, Slovakian twin brothers Pavol and Peter Hochschorner, qualified in second place while the in-form French pairing of Gauthier Klauss and Matthieu Peche placed third.
Only six go through the to the final of the men's C2 and both teams have a realistic chance of a medal. As winners of the semi-final, Hounslow and Florence will go last but both said they needed to stay focused.
Hounslow said: "It's not even half a job. We've made the final and it's now back to zero. We held it together, put in a nice run, and we're through to the final of the Olympic Games."
In the women's K1, Ireland's Hannah Craig could make it through to the final. She currently lies in second place, with 10 of the 15 competitors going through to the final.
Despite showing some blistering pace in the heats, Britain's Lizzie Neave, ranked 12th in the world, was unable to replicate her form in the semi-final.
She hit three gates, incurring six seconds worth of penalties and finished her run in 117.30 seconds, which left her in 12th place with a time of 117.30 seconds.
