Following the disqualification of the 2012 Olympic Bronze medallist due to positive doping test Spanish canoeist Sete Benavides advanced to the medal position after seven years.


This year’s bronze medallist of the 2nd European Games in Minsk, Belarus, Sete Benavides has advanced to the bronze medal position of the men’s C1 200 metres event at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Lithuanian canoeist Jevgenij Shuklin tested positive at a doping test. The substance that has caused the adverse result of Shuklin in the reanalysis carried out by the IOC is chlorodehydrometiltestosterone (Turinabol), an anabolic-androgenic steroid.
In this race Ukrainian Yuriy Cheban picked up bronze medal, followed by Shuklin and Russian Ivan Shtyl.
