2012 Olympics Results: France Wins Whitewater Men's C-1 Gold Medal Event

The finals of the men's canoeing C-1 whitewater slalom took place on Tuesday at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Georgia had two competitors early in the event, as Erick Hurd of Woodstock and Jeff Larimer of Marietta both went to the XXX Olympiad to compete in both C-1 and C-2.

Unfortunately, neither Hurd nor Larimer were able to reach Tuesday's gold medal final, which was eventually won by Tony Estanguet of France, with a time of 97.06 seconds, well ahead of silver medal winner Sideris Tasiadis of Germany, who finished in 98.09. 2008 gold medalist Michal Martikan took the bronze on Tuesday with a time of 98.31 seconds.
