#Canoeing - Coming off a strong 2015, where she claimed the bronze medal at the World Championships in the Czech Republic last summer, Lucan's Jenny Egan took time to answer a few questions from The Irish Times before her pre-Olympic training kicks up a gear.

Indeed, if not for a short illness laying her low for a few days over Christmas, Egan's dedication would already be off the charts – with as many as 16 sessions of land-based hard winter training every week.

But it's worth it for the Rio 2016 hopeful, who says she was "on cloud nine" for most of 2015 with her bronze medal followed by almost reaching the podium again in Baku in June, a sixth-place finish in the K1 5,000m in Milan and a fourth-place finish in the Canoe Marathon Worlds in Hungary.

And that's not to mention a win in September's Liffey Descent with her boyfriend Jonathan Simmons in the mixed K2.

The Irish Times has much more on the story HERE.

#CANOEING: Jenny Egan finished fourth, in a photo finish, in the final of the K1 5000 metres at the European Games in Azerbaijan today. Egan was just .455 of a second off matching the bronze medal she achieved at the European Canoe Sprint Championships in the Czech Republic in May. That race was won by Maryna Litvinchuk of Belarus, who again took gold today in Baku. Britain’s Lani Belcher, who was second, and Renata Csay of Hungary edged Egan out of medal contention. Both were within .7 of a second of Egan’s time.
