#Rowing: Commercial won the men's eight in a close and exciting final race of Metropolitan Regatta at Blessington today. UCD and the Irish champions were neck and neck in the final stages, but UCD had the advantage until the sprint to the line, which Commercial won.
The concluding session of finals featured an even closer race.
In the women's four, two junior crews hit the line with just .297 of a second between them. Bann, on the far side of the course from the viewing area, saw their lead snatched away by Castleconnell.
Kenmare's Georgia O'Brien (20) won her singles sculls final with much more to spare, though the second placing gave Aoife Moloney of Commercial victory in the junior 18 rankings.
There were also big margins of victory for Lagan in the men's quadruple and Anna Liffey in the women's pair.
Shane Haugh and James O'Donovan won the men's double. Last weekend O'Donovan was part of the Ireland coxed four which took silver at the European Junior Championships.
#Rowing: Georgia O’Brien of Kenmare took Ireland’s second gold of the day at the Coupe de la Jeunesse regatta in Hazewinkel in Belgium this afternoon. The single sculler had won her heat in the morning session and she did it again in the A Final in a slightly faster time, just pipping France’s Virginie Liot. Britain’s Jane Hardie took the bronze.
Earlier, the Ireland junior men's quadruple had taken gold.
