#CANOEING - The Evening Herald reports that top Irish canoeist Jenny Egan is headed to Florida for a few months of training towards a spot at the 2012 Olympics.

A sprint and marathon racer, Egan was named as The Irish Times/Irish Sport Council's Sportswoman of the Month for May 2010 in recognition of some very impressive performances.

Indeed, the Kildare native enjoyed much success in 2012, with second place in the 5000m at the World Sprint Cup in the Czech Republic and a new Irish record in the 500m at the Canoe Slalom Worlds in Hungary among her achievements.

Heading into 2012, the Salmon Leap club member will surely be shrugging off setbacks like her crash in the heat and humidity of Singapore at the Canoe Marathon Worlds last October.

The new year brings a new focus, as Egan will concentrate on the 500m and 200m K1 sprint distances for the London games, with the final qualifiers - for just 15 spots - taking place in Poland in April.

The Evening Herald has more on the story HERE.

Ireland's canoeists distinguished themselves at the ICF Canoe Marathon World Championships in Singapore last weekend, as The Irish Times reports.
In the women's K1 event, Jenny Egan placed eighth out of 25 entrants.
Egan kept pace with eventual winner Renata Csay of Hungary until one-third of the way into the 28.5km race.
But temperatures in the 30s and 80% humidity took their toll on the Salmon Leap paddler and her challenged faded instantly.
Meanwhile, her brother Peter Egan placed 11th in the men's K2 with partner Neil Fleming, missing out on a better place due to Egan's cramping before the end.
