The University of California won in a record time. O’Donovan was the bowman and is seen in this picture on the left. The crew finished second, inside the old record.

# ROWING: The University of Virginia crew, with Ireland’s Holly Nixon in the number three seat, put some of the top rowers in the world behind them as they finished third in the Women’s Championship Eight at the Head of the Charles in Boston yesterday. A “great eight” of top scullers, rowing as Cambridge BC, were the fastest crew, but they were penalised 10 seconds, thus yielding their win to the The United States in this time trial event. Canada’s Olympic silver-medal crew could only finish eighth and London Rowing Club, featuring British and New Zealand internationals were fourth. Nixon, who is just 18, is on scholarship to University of Virginia. She took a silver medal at the World Junior Championships last year.
