GB's Florence fails to make C1 final

Great Britain's David Florence is knocked out in the C1 canoe semi-finals, ending his hopes of a second Olympic medal in the singles.

The Beijing silver medallist, 29, hit gate 18, picked up two penalty points and lost momentum.

The world number one set the 10th fastest time with only the top eight progressing to the final.

Florence still has a chance of a medal when he competes in the canoe double semi-finals with Richard Hounslow.
