#Rowing: Ireland had to settle for sixth place in the first heat of the men’s pair at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton in Florida today. The new crew of Fionnán McQuillan-Tolan and Patrick Boomer were never realistic contenders for one of the first two places,  which would have sent them directly to the A/B semi-finals. They are now set for a repechage on Tuesday (5.24 or 5.29 Irish time).

 Ireland’s three lightweight crews won their heats: single sculler Denise Walsh secured her win with a sprint finish, while Paul O’Donovan and the pair of Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll won relatively easily.
