WINDSOR, ENGLAND - AUGUST 07: Franziska Weber (R) and Tina Dietze of Germany compete during the Women's Kayak Double (K2) 500m Sprint on Day 11 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Eton Dorney on August 7, 2012 in Windsor, England. (Photo by Quinn Rooney/Getty Images)
Germany won a pair of gold medals in the lake to continue its lead both in golds and overall medals in canoe/kayak events thus far in the Olympics.
Four flatwater medals were given out at the lake at Eton Dorney, and Germany took the top prize in two events.
Germany took the men's C-2 1000m and women's K-2 500m, and now now has three golds in canoeing and kayaking and eight overall medals -- both of which lead any country at the Olympics. Hungary, on the other hand, caught the bum end of the stick with a pair of silvers: Zoltan Kammerer, on the Hungarian four that took second place, had been looking for a fourth Olympic gold, and Katalin Kovacs, who was on the second-place women's K-2 boat, had just beaten a German squad featuring Franziska Weber and Tina Dietze in the K-4 Wednesday to end a 16-year streak of German medals before the German pair had their opportunity to exact their revenge a day later.
