Slovakia twins: We have a good balance

"We have a good balance between physical strength and mental strength," said Peter Hochschorner on Friday.

Slovakia's twins Pavol and Peter Hochschorner today made history by winning the unprecedented third canoeing slalom Olympic gold, extending their years-long dominance in the men's canoe double (C2) event.

The brothers, ranked world number one, won comfortably with a combined time of 190.82 seconds despite a penalty of four seconds for hitting two gates in the semifinal and final runs.

The powerful twins, third-time Olympians, attributed their successful title defense to their experience.

"We are more experienced, while the Germans are young," said the powerful twins in the mixed zone.

"It's not the main thing to be brothers," Pavol said. "We do get to spend a lot time together than most teams. But it's what we do on the water together that counts."
