Teneale Hatton has won gold in the women's K1 1000m at the Canoe Sprint World Cup in the Czech Republic.

Hatton beat Australian Naomi Flood by almost five-and-a-half seconds to land the victory on the latest leg of the world circuit series.

Meanwhile fellow New Zealander and Olympic champion Lisa Carrington picked up bronze in her less-favoured K1 500m.

Carrington, the reigning K1 200m champion who has been experimenting with adding the additional 500m event, was on the wrong end of an extremely tight finish.

Poland's Ewelina Wojnarowska won the race half a second ahead of compatriot Beata Mikolajczyk, with Carrington just a tenth-of-a-second further behind.
