#Kayaking - Laois teenager Calvin O'Brien is one of the latest to qualify for the junior men's freestyle kayaking team headed to the European Championships in Slovakia this September.

As the Leinster Express reports, the 17-year-old claimed his spot by showing off his moves in the tough proving ground of a whitewater kayaking tournament in Tuam, Co Galway recently.

And he continues a long line of success for the Laois Kayak & Canoe Club, which has members competing at national level in canoe marathons and canoe polo.

# EURO CANOE SLALOM: Ireland’s two competitors in the men’s K1 (racing kayak) at the European Canoe Slalom Championships in Krakow in Poland today came up short of making the final. The programme had to be radically altered because of the recent flooding and only the first 15 of 57 in a single run made it to the final. Ciaran Heurteau was ajudged to have missed the 15th gate and the resulting 50-second penalty ruled him out. However, Eoin Rheinisch was originally in the hunt, initially placing 8th after clocking 91.54 seconds including a two-second penalty for hitting gate 19. But that penalty was upped to 50 seconds and he finished 46th, with Heurteau 47th. Rheinisch’s original run would not have made it in any case as the competitors coming after him pushed him down the field.

K1 Heat One (First 15 to Final): 1 Czech Republic (V Hradilek) 82.96; 46 E Rheinisch 139.54 (89.54 plus 50 sec penalty); 47 C Heurteau 140.20 (86.20 plus 54 sec penalties).

# ROWING: Ireland’s Claire Lambe finished fourth in the A Final of the lightweight single sculls at the European Rowing Championships in Seville this morning.

Raced into a strong headwind this was an interesting contest. At the head of the field Greek tyro Alkaterini Nikolaidou moved up alongside multi-medal winner Michaela Taupe-Traer in the middle stages of the race and then took off at 1500 metres to win gold, with the Austrian having to settle for silver. Lambe was fourth behind Marie-Anne Frenken of the Netherlands all down the course and could not make up the deficit in the final quarter to move into the medal places.

# ROWING: Sanita Puspure was withdrawn from the A/B semi-final of the single sculls at the European Rowing Championships in Seville today. Ireland Performance Director, Morten Espersen said that the decision was made this morning because the 31-year-old had flu-like symptoms. Puspure was very unwell and could not race.

John Keohane finished fifth in his C Final, 17th overall, while the Ireland lightweight double of Niall Kenny and Justin Ryan finished 21st overall with third pace in the D Final behind Slovakia and the Czech Republic. In the C/D semi-final they were competitive early but lost out when the second half of the race became a scramble for second and third places behind dominant winners Hungary. Ireland struggled to deal with the head wind and finished fifth.
