Baku, August 20, AZERTAC

Hungary's Danuta Kozak retained her Olympic K1 500m title with an emphatic win at the Lagoa Stadium, according to BBC.

The 29-year-old powered away from the field to finish in one minute 52:49 seconds, nearly two seconds ahead of Denmark's Emma Jorgensen.

Maryna Litvinchuk of Belarus held the lead in the early stages, but was quickly caught and overtaken by Kozak.

New Zealand's Lisa Carrington claimed bronze in a close finish to add to her gold medal in the 200m kayak sprint.
