Tim claimed his second Olympic Medal from Beijing and his third in his career today when he added a Bronze Medal in the K1 500m to the K1 1000m Gold that he won yesterday at the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Lake.
After a slow start Tim worked his way back into the race and in the last 100m both Tim and Ken Wallace of Australia drew up to the early leader Adam van Koeverden of Canada. The final result was Ken Wallace, Gold, Adam van Koeverden, Silver and Tim Brabants Bronze.
