#Canoeing: Ireland's Liam Jegou finished ninth in the Under-23 C1 at the canoe slalom World Championships this morning. The 20-year-old went off second last in the final in Krakow in Poland and set a time of 94.62 seconds. He lost time in the middle section of the course, touching gate 14 and so incurring a two-second penalty. Florian Breuer of Germany had set a time of 87.88 early in the final and it was not matched. He took gold; Lukas Rohan of the Czech Republic silver and Russia's Kirill Setkin bronze.
