#CANOEING: Jenny Egan qualified for tomorrow’s A Final of the K1 500 metres at the European Olympic Qualifier in sprint canoeing at Poznan in Poland today. A finish in the top two would send her to London.

Egan finished fifth in her heat this morning and thus needed to be in the top three in the semi-final: she took the third place by just under four tenths of a second from Portugal’s Joana Sousa. Neil Fleming, in the K1 1,000 metres, and the K2 200m crew of Sean Marchetti and Val Peirce  missed out.
