From broken finger to Bronze for de Jonge
Canadian kayaker Mark de Jonge has won bronze in the K-1 200-metre race at the Olympic Games.
The 28-year-old from Halifax won both his heat and semifinal Friday to advance to today's final on the last day of canoe-kayak
competition at Eton Dorney.
De Jonge's Olympic dream was almost derailed in April when he broke a finger. The muscular kayaker dropped an 80-pound dumbbell on his hand when he lost balance during a workout in Florida.
Britain's Ed McKeever won the gold and Spain's Saul Craviotto Rivero took the silver.
