Markus Swoboda of Austria claimed his third victory of the weekend at the International Canoe Federation (ICF) Paracanoe World Cup in Hungary.

The Paralympic silver medallist picked up from where he left off yesterday with victory in the KL2 men's 500 metres in Szeged.

Swoboda completed the course in a time of 2min 04.72sec, comfortably quicker than nearest challenger Andras Rozbora of Hungary.

Rozbora was 10 seconds adrift in silver-medal position, while bronze went to his team mate Csaba Rescsik.

Victory for Swoboda saw him add to the gold medals he won in the VL3 and KL2 200m races on the opening day of the competition, the first to be staged since the coronavirus pandemic ground sport across the world to a halt.

Péter Pál Kiss of Hungary continued his strong start to the event at the same venue where he won World Championships gold last year.

The Hungarian led a one-two for the host nation in the KL1 men's 500m, edging out compatriot Robert Suba in 2:14.34.

Suba was forced to settle for the silver medal, with Remy Boulle of France taking bronze.

Nadezda Andreeva of Russia also picked up her second gold medal at the event as she topped the podium in the KL2 women's 500m in 2:23.20.
