#CanoeMarathon2013: Ireland’s Jenny Egan and Peter Egan finished 15th and 19th respectively at the Canoe Marathon World Championships at Lake Bagsværd, Denmark, today. Jenny Egan started promisingly but was knocked back by her performances on the portages.
Peter Egan was generally faster on his portages on his paddle, but did lose control of his boat on one and lost time.
Last year, in Rome, Peter Egan finished 17th and Jenny Egan 16th.
