Ian Ferguson wins Gold in Los Angeles 1984

Kayaker Ian Ferguson had already competed at two Olympic Games by the time the 1984 Los Angeles Games rolled around. Having returned from a brief stint of retirement from the sport, he was hungrier than ever for Olympic glory.

In Los Angeles Ferguson was unstoppable, following on from claiming a K1 500 silver medal at the 1983 World Championshis, he kicked off his phenomenal triple Olympic medal haul winning the K1 500 by half a length over the Swede, Lars-Erik Moberg.
