Canoeist Roberts Lagzdiņš finished seventh in the 500-meter semi-final race and will compete in the B final on Saturday, where he will be able to fight for 10th place overall.

In the 500 meters semi-final race in the Smailiš doubles, the Latvian crew Aleksejs Rumyancevs/Aldis Artūrs Vilde crossed the finish line fourth and remained the first over the line in the battle for the A final, however, earning the opportunity to start in the B final on Sunday.

Later on Friday, Lagzdiņš finished penultimate in 8th place in the semi-final race of 1000 meters, which was not enough to enter the B final.
