#Canoeing: Ireland’s three competitors in the men’s K1 (racing kayak) failed to make it through to the semi-finals of the canoe slalom World Championships in Spain today. Eoin Teague, who had a good first run, had five touches in his second – including two on the last three gates – and fell out of contention. Oisin Farrell and Sam Curtis, who both had had two touches each, were also not fast enough to make the top 10 who made it through from this round.  

 Caoimhe O’Ferrall did not make it through in the women’s C1.

#Canoeing: Eoin Teague was the top Ireland performer after the first run of the men’s K1 at the canoe slalom World Championships. Teague negotiated the course with no touches. His time of 94.91 put him in the lead  – but there is a huge entry, and he was pushed out of the top 20 which would have seen him qualify at this stage. Sam Curtis and Oisin Farrell were both given 50-second penalties for missing gates.

 Caoimhe O’Ferrall took 64th in her first run in the women’s C1.

#Canoeing: Sam Curtis was left to rue his close miss in the first run of the under-23 K1 at the canoe slalom World Championships in Krakow in Poland. The Irishman had to wait around for a protracted period as a technical issue was sorted out in the middle of the second run, and he did not do well. He touched five gates and missed one – gate 11. He was well outside the qualifying mark for the semi-finals. Noel Hendrick and Eoin Teague also missed out.

#CANOEING - The Irish Times reports that Eoin Rheinisch and Ciarán Heurteau have secured their canoe slalom qualification spots for London 2012 after last weekend's selection races in Lucan.

Three places were up for grabs in the men's K1, with the third yet to be confirmed after fourth-placed Patrick Hynes contested a touch on a gate by third-place finisher Sam Curtis.

Canoeing Ireland's recently appointed general manager Karl Dunne said the objection is currently being considered.

Meanwhile, in the women's K1, the qualifying spots went go Hannah Craig, Helen Barnes and Aisling Conlon.

The qualifiers will be part of the European Championships in Augusburg, Germany from 10-13 May, where Olympic spots are available for boats from two countries not already qualified.
