#Rowing: Ireland’s Monika Dukarska took silver at the World Coastal Rowing Championships in Thonon on Lake Geneva in France. The Killorglin woman held second for virtually the entire race behind Diana Dymchenko of Ukraine, who shot into an early lead and held it all the way to the end to take gold. The two fought a battle at the front of the field, but Dukarska could not close the clearwater gap Dymchenko had opened.  

 Earlier, Castletownbere had finished 14th in the women's coxed quadruple - they were moved up one place in the revised resutls.
