Jezierski 7th in World Cup

May 28, 2012

Ireland’s Andrzej Jezierski reached an A Final at the Canoe Sprint World Cup in Duisburg in Germany yesterday.

The 31-year-old won his semi-final of the C1 200 metres on Saturday, but did not have a good start in the final and finished seventh in a race won by Spain’s Alfonso Benavides.

Barry Watkins finished fifth in the A Final of the K1 500 metres yesterday, topping off a weekend in which he had also taken third in the B Final of the K1 1,000 (12th overall).

Jezierski is set to compete in the European Senior Sprint Championships in Croatia in June.
