After a late start due to fog, Angel Perez, who won consecutive legal battles over his eligibility, advanced to the men's two-man 100 meters finals by finishing third in a semifinal heat.
Perez, of Miami, and Peter Newton, of Honolulu, weren't even the U.S. entry in the event until last week, when they beat Stein Jorgensen, of San Diego, and John Mooney, of Seattle, in a intrasquad raceoff.
Those four will share a boat tomorrow in the K-4 finals. The quad is the United States' best chance for a kayak medal. The Perez-Newton duo is the only other chance, with its race Sunday
