Double gold for speedy Germans - London 2012 - Canoe Sprint
It was another good day for Germany at Eton Dorney as they took gold in the men's Canoe Double (C2) 1000m and women's Kayak Double (K2) 500m, while Australia and Hungary also won gold.
Peter Kretschmer and Kurt Kuschela comfortably won the C2, nearly two seconds ahead of brothers Andrei and Aliaksandr Bahdanovich from Belarus, who took silver.
Russia's Alexey Korovashkov and Ilya Pervukhin won bronze.
Speaking after the race, Dave Smith, 25, said: 'The Germans and the Hungarians are always tough to beat and it was a great feeling to be the only non-European team in the final. To then go on and beat them all was even better.
'We wanted to put it out there. It wasn't so much about beating the other crews but about forcing them to beat us. Fortunately it paid off. It was great to win gold.'
The silver belonged to Hungary and the Czech Republic took bronze.
