Triple medal-winning Olympian David Florence returned home from Rio 2016 having collected a second consecutive silver medal in the C2 alongside Richard Hounslow.

Florence won C1 silver at Beijing 2008 and repeated the feat alongside Hounslow four years later in the C2, then becoming the first canoe slalom paddler to be selected for three successive Olympic Games.

And away from the Olympic waters, the Edinburgh man became the first paddler in 60 years to win the C1 and C2 World Championship titles in the same year back in 2013.
