#Rowing: Ronan Byrne had to settle for fifth place in the final of the men’s single sculls at the World Under-23 Rowing Championships in Poznan, Poland. The defending champion, Trevor Jones of Canada is just 20 but he managed the race superbly, taking the lead and holding out against challenges from Marc Weber of Germany and Ben Davison of the United States. Behind these, Bulgaria’s Boris Yotov and Byrne fought their own battle through the middle of the race. In the final 200 metres, Davison, in third, caught a crab and left the bronze medal open – but it was the Bulgarian who grabbed it. Davison took fourth ahead of Byrne.
