The action at the Shunyi Canoeing Park saw Shaun Rubenstein qualify through to his second semi-final of the week when he finished fifth in the heats of the 500-metre single Kayak event.

“When we came down to breakfast to hear that we had a medal, it was a huge morale-booster,” said Rubenstein. “My tactics were to go out fast and secure the semifinal place. That will be huge, it’s knock-out stuff — there are six of seven guys who are in contention.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
