Wednesday’s second competition at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, in which Poland’s representatives competed on the regatta, was the qualifier for the 500m K1. Justina Iskrzyka, Marta Walchikevich competed in it.

Justina Eskrzyka performed well in her Olympic debut. Anja Osterman worked hard in the race with the participation of a Polish. Our representative sailed in third place, behind the Belarusian woman. In the second part of the distance, Iskrzycka started swimming more aggressively and, after a successful finish, finished the race in second place, giving her a direct promotion to the semi-finals.

Marta Walczykiewicz has already completed the K1 Olympic 200-meter final, in which she finished fourth after a fierce battle. At the 500m, I started with a certain promotion to the semi-finals, because from each of the qualifying races, the top three contenders were rewarded. In her race, Walczykiewicz was third, but she continued to dominate her position and couldn’t catch up. Hungarian Tamara Csipes may have won this series.

Also in the semi-finals is the Olympic champion with K1 200 meters and K2500 meters, Lisa Carrington. The New Zealander spoke out loud about the fact that she wanted to bring four gold medals from Tokyo, and with this start she proved that she would definitely be dangerous in one at 500 metres. Among the semi-finalists, there are also, among others, Danuta Kozak, Emma Jorgensen and Linnea Stensils.
