Fernando Pimenta won the third medal for Portugal

Canoeist Fernando Pimenta finished third in the final of the K1 1,000-meter race, winning the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

It is the third medal won by Portuguese athletes, after Jorge Fonseca’s bronze (judo) and Patrícia Mamona’s silver (triple jump).

Fernando Pimenta, 31 years old, silver medalist at the 2012 Games in London, but in K2 1000 meters, in pair with Emanuel Silva, has now finished the K1 1000 meters race in 3,22,478 minutes, just behind Hungarians Balint Kopasz, new Olympic record holder, with 3,20,643, and Adam Varga (3,22,431).

With three medals won in Tokyo, Portugal has already equaled the best record in the Olympic Games, repeating the three podium climbs in Los Angeles (1984) and Athens (2004).
