#Canoeing: Ireland’s three competitors in the men’s K1 (racing kayak) failed to make it through to the semi-finals of the canoe slalom World Championships in Spain today. Eoin Teague, who had a good first run, had five touches in his second – including two on the last three gates – and fell out of contention. Oisin Farrell and Sam Curtis, who both had had two touches each, were also not fast enough to make the top 10 who made it through from this round.
Caoimhe O’Ferrall did not make it through in the women’s C1.
