# CANOEING: Ireland took a creditable ninth place at the Olympic Games today when Andrzej Jezierski dominated the B Final of the C1 200 metres in the Canoe Sprint competition at Eton Dorney.

Jezierski, who had a poor start in his semi-final and missed out a place in the A Final, nailed it this time and led as he came into the closing stages. Vadim Menkov of Uzbekhistan came closest to catching the Cork-based competitor, but Jezierski won by .127 of a second.

Olympic Games – Canoe Sprint, Eton Dorney – C1 200m, B Final (places 9 to 16): 1 Ireland (A Jezierski) 44.041 seconds, 2 Uzbekhistan 44.168, 3 Hungary 44.466.

# CANOEING: A poor start cost Andrzej Jezierski dearly it the Olympic Canoe Sprint semi-finals this morning. A very tough draw in the C1 200 metres saw the Ireland competitor needing to finish in the first two of a top-class field to be sure of a final place, though the two fastest third-place losers of the three semis would also qualify. However, Jezierski struggled from the start and even his customary better second half could only secure fourth. It was the fastest of the three semi-finals. Jezierski  is now set for the B Final.

The top two places in the semi-final were taken by Ivan Shtyl of Russia and Alfonso Benavidez Lopes de Ayala of Spain.

She is the deserving and popular winner of the Afloat Rower of the MonthRower of the Month awards:

# ROWING: Ireland’s Mark O’Donovan and Niall Kenny missed out on the chance of Olympic Qualification when they finished fifth in their lightweight double scull semi-final at the Olympic Qualification Regatta in Lucerne today. The race was won by Australia, but the three boats behind them finished so close together that there was a a long delay as the judges decided which two landed positions in the final. The verdict went to Austria and Bulgaria – credited with exactly the same time – with Spain losing out. Ireland had not looked likely to land one of the top three spots for most of the race.
