Para-canoeist Dylan Littlehales has narrowly missed out on a medal, finishing fourth in the Men’s KL3 Final at Sea Forest Waterway in Tokyo on Friday 3 September.
22-year-old NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) scholarship holder and two time Paralympian Littlehales, from the NSW Central Coast came into the final after qualifying first in his semi-final heat earlier in the day and was a red hot chance to take a medal.
But, doubling up for the event was always going to be a big ask.
He missed out on a bronze medal by 0.012 seconds, finishing in time of 41.280, behind gold medallist Serhii Yemelianov from the Ukraine (40.355); silver medallist Leonid Krylov from the RPC (40.464) and bronze medallist Robert Oliver of Great Britain (41.268).
