WINDSOR, England (AP) Hungary's Danuta Kozak won the Olympic title in the women's 500-meter K-1 at Dorney Lake on Thursday, her country's third gold medal of the canoe sprint regatta.
The two-time European champion won in 1 minutes 51.456 seconds. Defending champion Inna Osypenko-Radomska of Ukraine won the silver medal and Bridgitte Hartley of South Africa took the bronze.
Kozak was the quickest qualifier by nearly a second. She bettered her second-place finishes at the last world championship and the 2012 European championship. It's her second gold of the games, following her victory Wednesday in the 500-meter K-4 team event.
Josefa Idem, the 47-year-old Italian competing in a women's record eighth Summer Games, finished fifth in her Olympic finale.
