#Rowing: Gary O’Donovan took sixth place in his heat of the lightweight single sculls at the European Rowing Championships in Lucerne this morning. The Skibbereen man, competing for the first time at this level in a single, found himself at the back of the field early on and while he pushed into fifth he saw the race disappear from him in the final sprint. Martino Goretti of Italy set the early pace and won.

#Rowing: Philip Doyle and Ronan Byrne gave Ireland a top-class start to the European Rowing Championships in Lucerne this morning. They won their heat of the double sculls with a powerful display, seeing off a challenge by Romania, who gave way only at the very finish, to win by over a length.

#Rowing: Paul O’Donovan and Gary O’Donovan won their heat of the lightweight double sculls to qualify confidently for the A/B semi-finals at the European Championships in Strathclyde. France, with Pierre Houin in the stroke seat and Thomas Baroukh in the bow, gave Ireland a good race. It was clear by the 1500 metre mark that these two crews were set for the semi-finals, but France would not let Ireland gain a clearwater lead. At 1750 metres the O’Donovans moved from two-thirds of a length to one length, but France stayed nipping at the lead to the line.

#Rowing: Ireland’s Shane O’Driscoll and Mark O’Donovan finished fourth in their heat of the pair on the opening day of the European Championships in Strathclyde, Glasgow. Just two crews go through to the A/B semi-finals, and Ireland face into a repechage.

 The race was well jugdged by Matthew Rossiter and Oliver Cook of Britain. They held a place behind leaders Belarus and the Netherlands until the final quarter, then elbowed their way into second. The Netherlands cracked and finished third.

 O’Driscoll and O’Donovan rowed well, but were not part of the final charge for qualification places and eased off with an eye on the repechage.

#Canoeing: Ireland’s Ronan Foley won the European junior championships in the canoe marathon K1 today. He raced remarkably well and was completely in charge at the end of an interesting 22.6 kilometre race in Metkovic in Croatia.

 Three paddlers – Foley of Ireland, Thorbjorn Rask of Denmark and Vince Petro of Hungary – broke away on the second of six laps. They stayed together until the final lap, when Foley used the final portage to secure gold. He sprinted away from the other two and when he got back in the water he extended the advantage.

 Matt McCartney of Celbridge Paddlers finished 13th.
