Ireland’s double scull of Lisa Dilleen and Sanita Puspure seized the day yesterday. They took second in their repechage at the World Rowing Championships at Bled in Slovenia and thus grabbed a place in the A/B semi-finals. This means they are still in contention for a top eight place at the Championships, which would qualify the boat for next year’s Olympic Games.

The repechage was won by Sarah Trowbridge and Kathleen Bertko of the United States, and Ireland battled with Switzerland before taking control of the second qualification place. But Denmark pushed Dilleen and Puspure hard over the last three hundred metres, only to find the Ireland athletes refusing to yield.
