Junior & U23 World Championships Romania

Salmon Leap would be the only club represented from Ireland at this year World Championships,  with only a small squad of 2 paddlers & coach:

Ryan O’Connor K1 200m

Ronan Foley K1 1000m & 500m

Coach Jon Simmons

They would both be competing in the U23 events.  Ryan got as far as the semi finals but sadly didn’t have a great start in the semi which cost him at the end of the race.  But his time from the semi gave him a world ranking of 20th.

Ronan though had a great weekend and come away with 3rd place in the K1 500m B final giving him a world ranking of 12th in this distance!  But the highlight result was his 6th in the A final of the K1 1000m.  A fantastic results by this young man in his first year U23.  Truly a fantastic performance for club and country.  Well don’t Gentleman on a good weeks racing.
