Liam’s golden delight


GOLDEN kayak king Liam Heath is delighted he didn’t walk away from the sport.

The 32-year-old, who took top spot in the kayak 200 metre sprint, said: “Essentiall­y, this is what I’ve worked for all my life.

“I only came back into the sport in 2009 after leaving it without any thought of competing again.

“To think if I hadn’t come back I would have missed out on this moment is quite scary.”
