#Rowing: Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll took third place in their C Final of the men’s pair at the World Cup in Belgrade this morning. This was an extraordinary race. Britain Two, South Africa, Ireland and Greece moved as a pack through halfway and the 1500 metres. Greece then took over in the lead, with Ireland also contending. But Hungary, which had hung in sixth and fifth place through most of the 2,000 metres, finished best. They passed the leaders and won, with Greece and Ireland next over the line.

 The placing put O’Donovan and O’Driscoll 15th of the 22 crews which raced.

#Rowing: Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll finished third in their repechage and qualified for the C Final of the men’s pair at the World Cup regatta in Belgrade. The first two boats over the line qualified for A/B Semi-Finals, and the Netherlands One, which won well, and Netherlands Two took these spots. O’Donovan and O’Driscoll pushed hard to break into the top two, with a very high rate of striking, but even though they did not do this, their fast finish helped them win a battle with South Africa to take third and secure a place in the C Final (places 13 to 18).

#Rowing: Denise Walsh and Margaret Cremen finished fifth in their heat of the lightweight double sculls at the World Cup Regatta in Belgrade and must compete in a repechage as they seek a semi-final place. There were just two places on offer in the heat and Britain One and the United States One asserted control early on and took them in that order.

#Rowing: Sanita Puspure booked her places in the semi-finals of the World Cup in Belgrade with a commanding win in her heat. The Ireland single sculler had a slight lead by the 500 metre mark over Diana Dymchenko of the Ukraine. Puspure extended her advantage by halfway and then moved clear in the second 1,000 metres. Carling Zeeman of Canada tried to push into the second – and final – qualifying spot but could not get past Dymchenko, who finished almost nine seconds behind Puspure.
