Canoe Slalom World Cup 2

CANOE SLALOM Ciaran Heurteau reached new heights today when he finished fifth in the canoe slalom World Cup 2 final in Pau in the Pyrenees. 

The 24-year old qualified for the final by finishing third in the semi-final and he competed well. Chasing an exceptional mark of 100.17 seconds set by Etienne Daille of France, Heurteau came down the course in 102.32 seconds but he had touches on gates 12 and 24 (the second last on the course), which resulted in four seconds in time faults. Daille took gold while Heurteau was less than a second off a bronze medal.
