Sixth Place in European Final for Liam Jegou

#Canoeing: Ireland Under-23 competitor Liam Jegou finished sixth at the canoe slalom European Championships today in Krakow, Poland. Jegou went off second last in the running order of the C1 (Canadian canoe) final thanks to an excellent performance in the semi-final. However, Kirill Setkin of Russia set a remarkable time of 81.91 seconds, and while Jegou came down the course with no penalties, his time of 88.06 would push him out of the medals. Setkin took gold.
