WINDSOR, England (AP) - Lisa Carrington of New Zealand won gold in the inaugural women's 200-meter K-1 sprint at Dorney Lake on Saturday, denying Hungarian kayaker Natasa Douchev-Janics a fourth Olympic title.
Carrington, the reigning world champion, came through late to win in 44.638 seconds. Inna Osypenko-Radomska of Ukraine won silver and Douchev-Janics took bronze.
Douchev-Janics was also second in the 500-meter K-2 on Thursday with Katalin Kovacs.
