Incheon: It turned out to be a disappointing day for the Indians in canoeing and kayaking competitions as none of them could fetch a medal despite reaching the finals in several events at the 17th Asian Games here today.
Gaurav Tomar, who had topped the semifinal yesterday, found the going tough at the Hanam Misari Center as he took 4:17:389 minutes to cover 1000m in the Canoe Men's Single (C1) Final A to finish at the seventh spot.
Albert Raj Selvaraj also had a disappointing outing in the Kayak men's Single K1 Final A as he finished at eighth spot after clocking 3:59.933 to cover a distance of 1000m.
Ajit Kumar Sha and Raju Rawat clocked 4:00.800 to finish fifth in Canoe Double (C2) 1000m Men Final A, while the quartet of Ragina Kiro, Biju Anusha, Soniya Devi and Nanao Devi Ahongshangbam could manage a timing of 1:52.022 to sign off at the seventh spot in Kayak Four (K4) 500m Women Final A.
Men's quartet of Ajit Singh, Sunny Kumar, Ramesh Golli, Chingching Singh Arambam also were lacklustre in their performance as they ended in the eighth spot, ahead of only bottom-placed Singapore, after clocking 3:15.291 in Kayak Four (K4) 1000m Men Final A.
In Kayak Double (K2) 500m Women Final A, Ragina Kiro and Nanao Devi clocked 1:55.351 to languish at the bottom, while Jamesboy Singh Oinam too finished last after producing a timing of 43.981 in Canoe Single (C1) 200m Men Final A.
