Great Britain duo Abigail Edmonds and Louisa Sawers have made it through to the semi-finals of the kayak double 500m event.

Sweden topped the qualifying times with 1:44.473s, while Russia finished the circuit in 1:45.710s to clinch the second fastest time ahead of the semi-finals.

Romania and Australia will also fight it out for a place in the final following their successful times today, while Cuba missed out after finishing the course in 1:46.587s.
