Van Koeverden - 8th in the K-1 1000m

I don't know a bit about kayak, but he was a a very strong contender for a medal in that race. I can't help but be very disappointed by his performance, but at the same time I know he is also taking it very hard. All in all I think i'm just very sad to see an extreme performer, crash and burn when its time to excel. I sincerely hope he can rally and step up to the plate for the k-1 500m, "Go Go Go man, go lets go!" On the other hand Karine Sergerie fought her way all the way to a silver medal taekwondo our best ever finish in that discipline - way to go!!
