Hallers fall short at worlds

September 07, 1995

Baltimoreans Fritz and Lecky Haller failed to make the finals in the two-man canoe slalom event in the World Championships in Nottingham, England.

They hit a wall and missed a gate in the qualifying round and were penalized by almost a minute, eliminating them from the competition. The Gilman grads still have a chance to qualify for the Olympics in races next spring.

Bethesda's Davey Hearn, 36, the oldest entrant in men's single canoe slalom, won a gold. He has two golds and five silvers in World Championships events dating to 1985. The only other American medalist was Scott Shipley of Poulsbo, Wash., with a second in men's single kayak.
