Disappointing silver for Spanish flag bearer
By:
thinkSPAIN , Friday, August 22, 2008

Galicia's David Cal has been beaten into second place in the C-1 1000m kayak final this morning by Hungary's Attila Sandor Vajda. Canada's Thomas Hall was third. Spain's most successful athlete at the Athens Games, where he won one gold (C-1 1000m) and one silver (C-1 500m), Cal goes again in the C-1 500m final tomorrow.

In the men's hockey semi-finals yesterday, two second half goals by Captain Freixa, who also created the third for Tubau, saw Spain turn the tables on Australia, who had been two-nil up at the break. Despite having reached the Olympic final on two previous occasions, Spain have yet to win hockey gold, and to do so this time around they will have to beat Germany, who came through a penalty shootout against Holland.

Spain's men's basketball and handball teams are both involved in semi-final action later today - against Lithuania (2pm) and Iceland (2.15pm) respectively.

And last, but by no means least, there has been further success for Spain's synchronised swim girls, who lie in second place behind Russia after a brilliant performance in this morning's first round of the team final.
