#Canoeing: Sam Curtis was left to rue his close miss in the first run of the under-23 K1 at the canoe slalom World Championships in Krakow in Poland. The Irishman had to wait around for a protracted period as a technical issue was sorted out in the middle of the second run, and he did not do well. He touched five gates and missed one – gate 11. He was well outside the qualifying mark for the semi-finals. Noel Hendrick and Eoin Teague also missed out.
