#Canoeing: Jenny Egan produced a spirited fightback to take a bronze medal at the canoe sprint World Championships – her first in this championships. The Ireland K1 paddler fell back after a disappointing start at Montemor O Velho and had to claw her way from 15th to third. Lizzie Broughton of Britain sprinted away to take gold, with Maryna Litvinchuk of Belarus taking silver. Egan took bronze at the canoe marathon World Championships in 2017 and will compete in the marathon event again next month.

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.
