Great Britain's David Florence failed to challenge for a medal in the men's canoe slalom as he finished 10th at the Rio Olympics.
The two-time Olympic silver medallist committed a costly early error, ending in last place with a time of 109.00.
Denis Gargaud Chanut clocked a winning time of 94.17, securing France's second gold medal in Brazil, while Matej Benus of Slovakia claimed silver and Japan's Takuya Haneda took the bronze.
Florence will target another medal when he teams up with Richard Hounslow in the men's C2 double on Thursday.
Tonia Couch and Lois Toulson joked they would be asking for a green pool in future after recording a personal best in finishing fifth in the women's synchronised 10m platform final.
The pool appeared to turn greener as the final wore on and reached a near-inevitable conclusion: victory for China, their third from three events at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre.
"It's so green," Couch said. "But we got a personal best score, so maybe we should ask for a green pool from now on. I kind of liked it."
Elsewhere, veteran show-jumper William Fox-Pitt had to settle for a 12th-place finish in the eventing individual jumping final.
Fox-Pitt produced two clear rounds, just months after recovering from a coma, but a costly mistake on Tuesday had harmed his medal hopes.
