#Canoeing: Liam Jegou (20) took until his second run to master a tough course at the canoe slaolm Irish Open at Lucan today. The C1 competitor lowered the time of his first run by over 10 seconds, setting a winning mark of 90.81 seconds. Mike Kurt, the Swiss international who set the pace in the K1, also struggled on his first run on a course where two upstream gates below the sluice tested all the competitors. Kurt nailed it on the second run, with the best penalty-free time of the day – 89.08 seconds. Ciarán Heurteau, recovering from injury and a break from the sport, was the best Ireland senior competitor, being credited with 95.01 seconds, which included four seconds in penalties. Sam Curtis was bang in form at under-23 level: his first run was a winning one of 90.56 seconds. He bettered the time in the second run (88.64) but was adjudged to have touched one gate and missed another, so incurring 52 points in penalties.

 Hannah Craig was the top woman competitor in the senior K1, while Caoimhe O’Ferrall set an excellent time of 121.92 in the C1, though she is just 18.
