Great Britain's Louisa Sawers took silver in the K1 5,000m in the European canoe sprint Championships in Portugal.

Sawers, 25, who was part of the quartet that came fifth in the K4 500m kayak final in last year's London Olympics, finished just under four seconds behind Hungarian Renata Csay.

Olympic champion Ed McKeever finished fifth in the Men's K1 200m final.

Britain's Liam Heath and Jonathan Schofield narrowly missed out on a medal, coming fourth in the K2 200m.
