Britain scooped a fourth silver medal at the Olympics today thanks to Scotsman Campbell Walsh.

Team GB's improved run of form continued as Walsh covered himself in glory in the canoeing competition.

Glasgow-born Walsh, whose home town is Bridge of Allan, Stirlingshire, paddled his way to second place in the Men's Kayak Single event at the Helliniko Olympic Complex.

The 26-year-old, number two in the world rankings, picked up where Britain left off yesterday, with a great run in the slalom event.

Walsh, who has an MSc in mathematical physics after studying at Nottingham University and took up the sport when he was 10, added to Team GB's silver and gold medal haul yesterday.
