Alan Thompson wins K1 1000m Gold, Los Angeles 1984 

Alan Thompson won the K1 1000 convincingly, beating silver medallist Milan Janic of Yugoslavia by more than a second, and was part of a superb K4 combination. “Our K4 team – Ferguson, MacDonald, Grant Bramwell and me – was a very special combination. Even though kayaking technology has moved on light years since 1984, the times we recorded back then would have got us into many major finals for years afterwards,” said Thompson.
