And 121 medals go! Fernando Pimenta was crowned European champion in the 5000 meters distance this Sunday, at the European Championships in Munich, thus achieving his third medal in this championship, the first gold. He thus regains a title he had already won in 2016 in Moscow.
The Portuguese canoeist did almost the entire race in the lead, finishing with 20m14.447, ahead of the 44-year-old Spaniard Walter Bouzan, who always walked together, and finished more than three seconds away. Third place on the podium goes to the Polish Rafa Rosolski, far away, 30 seconds away.
This is the second gold medal for Portugal on this last day of the championships, after Kevin Santos won in the 200 meters
