#ROWING: Sanita Puspure is the Afloat Rower of the Month for May. The Old Collegians single sculler put Ireland back on the map in this prestigious discipline when she took bronze at the European Championships, which ran from May 30th to June 1st. She finished third in her heat, behind Olympic champion Mirka Knapkova and Chantal Achterberg of the Netherlands, but then won her repechage and placed a steady second in her semi-final. Puspure went on to reproduce the good form she had been showing in training in the final, just .3 of a second behind gold medallist Knapkova and 0.02 behind fast-finishing Achterberg.

The achievement brought Ireland its first senior medal at a major Championships for a female openweight competitor.

Rower of the Month awards: The judging panel is made up of Liam Gorman, rowing correspondent of The Irish Times and David O'Brien, Editor of Afloat magazine. Monthly awards for achievements during the year will appear on afloat.ie and the overall national award will be presented to the person or crew who, in the judges' opinion, achieved the most notable results in, or made the most significant contribution to rowing during 2014.

#ROWING: Sanita Puspure lifted Ireland to the podium at the European Rowing Championships in Belgrade in Serbia today. In a brilliant final of the women’s single sculls, Puspure started well and stayed up with the leaders right through the race. In a thrilling final 50 metres Mirka Knapkova, the Olympic champion battled Puspure to hold on to the lead, and then Puspure was just edged out of silver by a stunning finish by Chantal Achterberg of the Netherlands. There was just two hundredths of a second between silver and bronze – and Puspure was just three tenths of a second behind gold medal winner Knapkova.

#ROWING: Ireland’s Sanita Puspure joined the women’s pair in the A Finals of the European Rowing Championships in Belgrade, Serbia by finishing second in her semi-final. Germany’s Annekatrin Thiele set the pace for much of the race, but Puspure pushed her hard in the closing stages and the German faded. Chantal Achterberg of the Netherlands then took up battle with Puspure and finished just over a second faster than the Ireland sculler.

In the repechage of the women’s double sculls, Eimear Moran and Monika Dukarska were never in contention and finished at the back of the field, almost 25 seconds behind the winners, the Netherlands.
