Ireland's canoeists distinguished themselves at the ICF Canoe Marathon World Championships in Singapore last weekend, as The Irish Times reports.
In the women's K1 event, Jenny Egan placed eighth out of 25 entrants.
Egan kept pace with eventual winner Renata Csay of Hungary until one-third of the way into the 28.5km race.
But temperatures in the 30s and 80% humidity took their toll on the Salmon Leap paddler and her challenged faded instantly.
Meanwhile, her brother Peter Egan placed 11th in the men's K2 with partner Neil Fleming, missing out on a better place due to Egan's cramping before the end.
