Jezierski wins B Final

 

Olympics:Polish born Andrzej Jezierski, now competing for Ireland, won the C1 200m B final at Eton Dorney, to finish ninth overall at the London Games. The Cork based canoeist finished second in yesterday morning’s heat but missed out on a place in the elite final when coming in fourth in one of three semi-finals.

Jerzierski won the B final in a time of 44.041, ahead of Vadim Menkov of Uzbekistan in 44.168. Attila Vajda of Hugary was third. The naturalised Irishman – he’s a former world champion – finished fifth in the European Championships earlier in the year. His achievement this morning will have garnered some valuable ranking points in terms of future championships.
