They won a battle with Norway but were pipped by Ukraine, who mounted a surprise late charge, having been in third for much of the 2,000 metres. All three crews qualified.

# ROWING: The Ireland double of Laura D’Urso and Holly Nixon qualified for the semi-finals of the World Under-23 Championships by finishing third in their heat this morning in Trakai in Lithuania. The Irish chased eventual winners Austria down the course, and filled second until a late challenge by France pushed them into third.

Claire Lambe must compete in a repechage after finishing second in a fight for the one qualification place with Anna Ioannou of Cyprus in their heat of the lightweight single scull. The Dubliner refused to let Ioannou get comfortable in the lead and passed her going into the final quarter, but the Cypriot struck back and retook the lead.

# ROWING: A tremendous performance by a crew including three lightweights won lots of praise but was not enough to see the UCC/London Rowing Club progress in the Queen Mother for open quadruple sculls at Henley Royal Regatta this morning. The headwind conditions did not suit the crew of Rowing Ireland lightweights Niall Kenny, Anthony English, Mark O’Donovan and English heavyweigt Henry Pelly, but they got off to a great start and headed Canadian opponents Victoria City. Even when passed, the men in green came back at their bigger rivals and drew level.The Canadian crew then establised a lead but could not break away until a push in the last 10 to 15 strokes which saw them win by one and three-quarter lengths.

Victoria City were surpise winners on Friday against Danmarks Rocenter, a selected (seeded) crew.

Queen Mother (Quadruple Sculls, Open): Victoria City Rowing Club, Canada bt UCC/London RC (N Kenny, A English, H Pelly, M O’Donovan) 1¾ l, 7:24

# ROWING: Ireland’s only eight competing at Henley Royal Regatta bowed out of the Temple Cup today. Trinity led the University of Michigan at the Barrier and Fawley (roughly halfway).
