IT WAS a frustrating day for Ireland’s Noel Hendrick, as he narrowly missed out on a spot at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The 23-year-old was competing at the K1 Canoe Slalom semi-finals at Ivrea in Italy and agonisingly missed out by just one nation place.

A 24th-place finish with a time of 88.58 at the event saw him just fall short of the coveted spot.

Hendrick, whose past achievements include a fourth-place finish along with his twin brother Robert at the U23 World Championships, will now likely turn his attentions to the Paris 2024 Games.

More details are available on the event’s official website here.
