New Zealand canoe slamonist Luuka Jones says she's "gutted" after finishing out of the top three in the women's K1 at the Olympics last night.
The 32-year-old won a silver medal in the same event at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
In last night's final in Tokyo Jones finished sixth with a time of 110.67, over five seconds off the pace.
"I’m in really good shape and I think I just started losing a bit of time and let that get to me and started being a bit too aggressive and wasn’t patient enough," Jones said after the race.
"I’m really gutted. I put a lot of work into this; and not just me but a lot of people."
Her Olympics campaign isn't over though with the women's C1 heats kicking off at 4pm today.
