Ed McKeever wins gold at World Cup event in Radice

Ed McKeever rounded off a fine weekend for the Great Britain team with a gold medal at the canoeing World Cup event in Radice in the Czech Republic.

McKeever beat Russia's Victor Zavolskiy in a photo finish to win the K1 200m.

That means the British team end the weekend with one gold, two silvers and three bronzes, all in Olympic events.

"Champions find a way to win when maybe they might get beaten, which is what Ed did out there today," said head coach Brendan Purcell.

McKeever's success was the high point of a day's racing which brought Great Britain four medals.

Jon Schofield and Liam Heath claimed silver in the men's K2 200m, being narrowly edged out by French world champions Arnaud Hybois and Sebastien Jouve.

Jessica Walker added a bronze in the K1 200m to the silver she won in Saturday's K4 500m, and there was another bronze for Lani Belcher and Angela Hannah in the K2 500m.

"It's unreal - a medal in each of the women's Olympic events, the girls have set a standard as a squad and are showing incredible fighting and racing spirit," said Purcell.

"There was really exciting racing for the men's 200m.

"Jon and Liam were really happy with their race, but there are some areas where they can improve which is really positive when you are going forward to the European and World Championship."
