Poland finished fourth originally, but was disqualified when Seroczyński tested positive for doping. After a year of deliberation and court cases, it was determined on 11 December 2009 that Poland was disqualified. Additionally, Seroczyński was banned from competition for two years. He is the first canoer to fail a doping test in the Summer Olympics.
