European Games – Minsk 2019

Jenny Egan and Ronan Foley kicked off their campaign in canoeing this morning (Tuesday), with Egan competing in the Women’s K1 500 where she qualified through to the semi-finals, later today. In the Men’s K1 1000 Foley qualified through to the semis where he produced a PB with a time of 3:37:385.

Last season, Foley took the European junior marathon title and finished second at world level  and the European Games is providing valuable experience for him in his first year as a  senior

I’m really happy with how it went. I came away with a PB of 3:37. I have the 5km in two days time, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how I can go, and how I can develop myself in both distances in the future years to come,” he said after his race.
