K4 1000 m gold gold fifth 10350
K1 500 m fourth fifth sixth 3564

This particular combination is the most logical, as the races for the 500 meters are always run on the other day than those for the 1000 meters, and there is only one distance for the K4.

Romeo Verschelden

Olympic Competitor nr 2832


Fernand Versini

Olympic Competitor nr 4931

The extra match (which is now used to decide fifth/sixth) place was not scheduled, so it is doubtful whether this athlete (who did not play in the regular quarterfinal) should qualify as a real Olympian.


Georgios Versis

Olympic Competitor nr 6182

(*) the semifinal rosters are not known, and there were 5 known competitors in the qualifying round, so it is quite possible Versis competed in only some of the semifinal matches


Sotirios Versis

François Verstraeten
