Chris Fleming brought the point lead to Fulton, won his heat and raced from 10th starting into the top four in the main event before breaking.

Thousands of slaves who did not survive the journey across the Atlantic were buried in a cemetery near the Valongo Wharf from 1770 to 1830, BBC reports.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
