RIO DE JANEIRO, August 16. /TASS/. Russian athlete Roman Anoshkin has won a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics in the men’s kayak single 1,000m heat.
The Russian athlete covered the distance in 3 minutes and 33.363 seconds.
The gold went to Spaniard Marcus Walz (3:31.447) while the silver was grabbed by Czech athlete Josef Dostal (3:32.145).
Born in the Moscow Region on August 31, 1987, Anoshkin won a bronze medal in the men’s kayak single 500m event at the 2015 World Championship and a silver medal in the men’s kayak four event at the 2016 European competition.
This season, the Russian rower has won the 2nd place at the World Cup stage in Duisburg (the kayak four).
The International Canoe Federation (ICF) earlier barred Russian canoeists Andrey Kraitor and Alexey Korovashkov and three kayakers - Elena Aniushina, Natalia Podolskaia and Alexander Dyachenko from the Rio Olympics, following a report by the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) led by Richard McLaren.
Later, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) cancelled this decision for Kraitor and Korovashkov and admitted them to the Rio Olympics.
The Summer Olympic Games in Brazil will last through August 21.
