ROWING: The Ireland lightweight men’s double took a bronze medal and Sanita Puspure finished fifth in the women’s single on the first day of A Finals at the Memorial Paolo D’Aloja international regatta in Piediluco in Italy today.

This was a first medal in a senior event for the lightweight double of Mark O’Donovan and Niall Kenny, who hope to represent Ireland at next month’s Olympic Qualifier in Lucerne. They did it by maintaining a high rate through a race which was won by Nuno Mendes and Pedro Fraga of Portugal – a crew which qualified for London 2012 by finishing 10th at last year’s World Championships.

Puspure, who is also targeting the Qualifiers, finished third in a group of three which disputed third in the closing stages of her race, with a second covering all three crews. The race was won by Serbia’s Iva Obradovic.

Justin Ryan finished fourth in the A Final of the lightweight single scull. The race was won by Lorenzo Bertini of Italy.

ROWING: Ireland’s two Olympic-class crews, the lightweight men’s double of Mark O’Donovan and Niall Kenny and single sculler Sanita Puspure, qualified for today’s first day of finals at the Memorial Paolo d’Aloja in Piediluco. Both finished second in their heats. Justin Ryan’s third place in the heat of the lightweight single scull also saw him qualify.

 The lightweight women's double scull of Claire Lambe and Siobhan McCrohan, who were entered in this event, were withdrawn and will also not go forward to the Olympic Qualifier next month. The head of the High Performance programme, Martin McElroy, said the crew had had consistent difficulities with making the required weight.
