Australian semi-final show-down on the Olympic stage

The second round of Olympic canoe sprint medals will be up for grabs at Sea Forest Waterway on Thursday, with the semi-finals and finals in the women’s K1 500 and the men’s K2 1000m on the Tokyo 2020 program.

Four Australian crews have qualified for the semi-finals and with the semi-final draw placing two Australian boats in the same semi-final race, the scene is set for an epic Australian show down on the Olympic stage with the coveted medal race spots on the line.

The women’s K1 500m will be first up and dual Olympians Alyce Wood and Alyssa Bull will go head-to-head in the seven-boat semi-final 4 with only the top two boats to qualify for the medal race (Final A) and the rest to go to Final B and C.
