Like in his best days, Serguey Torres twice reached the highest step of the podium of Montemor-o-Velho, Portugal on Saturday. First with his partner Fernando Dayán Jorge, in the C2 1000, and then in the K-1 5000, the same distance in which he also won the gold two years ago.

This is considered a great result in the pair’s first international competition since Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, where they finished sixth.
