Baillie/Stott Gold – Men's Canoe Double | London 2012 Olympics



Full replay of the Men’s Canoe Double final in which Great Britain’s Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott won Gold during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

In 1924 in Paris, flatwater canoeing featured at the Games as a demonstration sport. Canoe and kayak racing became full medal sports at the 1936 Berlin Games. However events were initially limited to canoe sprint until canoe slalom made its debut at the 1972 Munich Games. Slalom racing was not competed again in the Olympic Games until the 1992 Barcelona Games.

  1. I competed in slalom years ago and know how tough it is to race and miss those gates. Its fantastic to see our sporting stars beat the rest of the world in such a great event.

  2. if you are broadcasting for your OWN country, you are allowed to show bias cause no other countries will get the commentary, so going 'come on Great Britain' is fine if no other countries hear the commentary

  3. "We were hoping that Great Britain would win a medal." Tsk, tsk…he just broke the #1 cardinal rule of sports broadcasting – don't show bias. And people say American broadcasters are biased…

  4. I was at the stadium, one of the best moments of my life was when the Slovakians got that penalty. The roar didn't sound big but from my stand it was so loud it was funny that we were cheering so hard at other peoples expense!
