#Rowing: Ireland took two medals on the second day of the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Poznan, Poland today. The Ireland pair of Tara Hanlon and Amy Mason rowed to a fine second place behind Britain, putting pressure on the long-time leaders coming up to the line. The junior quadruple of Lucy Taylor, Hannah Scott, Fiona Chestnutt and Margaret Cremen took bronze in their final. They were fourth until halfway, but put in a fine second 1,000 metres, taking over a clear third as Italy faded back. Switzerland took gold ahead of Britain.
The junior men’s four finished second in their B Final, and the junior men’s quad were 4th in theirs, one place ahead of the Netherlands.
