In a busy week of sport for Estonia's athletes worldwide, canoeist Joosep Karlson's name should be added to dispatches, after making it to the semi-finals in the 1000 meter event, at the 2022 ICF Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe World Championships on Lake Banook, in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Seven rowers progressed from the heat – Frenchman Adrien Bart, as winner, with a time of 4.05.82, automatically qualified for the final, while the second-to-seventh-placed competitors have to row against each other again in the semi-final.
Karlson came fifth, 10.66 seconds behind the winner.
On Thursday he had also secured a place in the 500m semi-finals.
