Laois Teen Makes Freestyle Kayaking Team For Euros

#Kayaking - Laois teenager Calvin O'Brien is one of the latest to qualify for the junior men's freestyle kayaking team headed to the European Championships in Slovakia this September.

As the Leinster Express reports, the 17-year-old claimed his spot by showing off his moves in the tough proving ground of a whitewater kayaking tournament in Tuam, Co Galway recently.

And he continues a long line of success for the Laois Kayak & Canoe Club, which has members competing at national level in canoe marathons and canoe polo.

The Leinster Express has more on the story HERE.
