Jezierski Misses Chance By Trying Too Hard to Start Fast

Jezierski Misses Chance By Trying Too Hard to Start Fast

#CANOE SPRINT: Andrzej Jezierski’s challenge in the semi-finals of the Canoe Sprint World Cup in Szeged, Hungary ended before it began. The Ireland competitor first had a false start and then, straining to get an edge second time around, he fell in just before the race was due to begin. He was disqualified and the race went off without him. Jenny Egan finished ninth in the women’s K1 200 metres semi-final and Peter Egan and Simas Dobrovolskis filled the same position in the K2 200m semi-final.

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.
