A brilliant second run from Hannah Craig secured her place in the Olympic K1 Canoe slalom semi-finals on Thursday.

Craig was lying 14th after the first round, after a time of 117 seconds which included eight penalty seconds after clipping four gates.

But on her second run the Armoy paddler had a virtually clean run, just hitting one gate and improving her time substantially with a 108.99 run.

That has provisionally moved her up to 10th place and, with the second half of the field still to come, there is no one left who will knock her out of the top 15 who go through to Thursday's semi-finals.
