Canoeist Heurteau Finishes Just Short of World Cup Final

#CanoeSlalomTacen: Ireland’s Ciarán Heurteau came within 1.24 seconds of qualifying for the final of the Canoe Slalom World Cup in Tacen in Slovenia this morning. In an exciting semi-final, the 26-year-old had a clear run in 107.22 seconds. This slotted him into eighth with eight competitors to go and he was eventually pushed into 15th. The 10th-placed qualifier clocked 105.98.

Eoin Rheinsich came down the course in a raw time of 108.19, but a touch on gate 13 cost him a two-second penalty. He finished 25th.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
