British pair Deborah Kerr and Emily Lewis will face off after both reach the same quarter-final in the kayak sprint singles

British pair Deborah Kerr and Emily Lewis will face each other in the quarter-final of the kayak singles at the Tokyo Olympics.

The duo are competing in the women’s canoe sprint K1 200m event in the Japanese capital.

Kerr came third and Lewis fourth in their heats, missing out on the top two spots which would have seen them qualify automatically for the semi-finals.
