Senior European Championships

Salmon Leap had two members head out to the Senior Europeans in Poznan, Poland.

Mens K1 1000m & 500m was Barry Watkins.

Womens K1 5000, 500 & 200m was Jenny Egan.

Both Barry and Jenny were seeded in some tough heats and semifinals, both made B finals.  Barry was 6th in the K1 1000m B final and 7th in the K1 500m B Final.  Jenny was 6th in the K1 500m B Final and finished the 200m ranked 15th in Europe.  Well done to both Barry and Jenny for some tough yet exciting racing at the Senior Europeans.

Jenny had one more race to go, the final race of the Championships for Jenny would be the K1 5000m.  Sadly Jenny didn’t have a great start but showed courage and determination to climb up the field and come home with a very creditable 4th place in Europe.

Congratulations to both Jenny and Barry on doing both club and country proud.
