#Rowing: Monika Dukarska and coach David McKenzie McGowan have been snowbound at the National Rowing Centre for four days. The Ireland international trained on the lake on Wednesday but her car has been snowed in and she sees little chance of leaving the woodland venue until there is a thaw. The venue has multiple sleeping quarters and both have water, food and electricity – but they are short of bread. They scratched out a plea in the snow in the front of the boathouse.

#Rowing: Paul O’Donovan was by far the fastest single sculler at the Irish Trial, held over six kilometres at the National Rowing Centre today. The conditions at this point were excellent, and the world lightweight champion clocked 23 minutes 25 seconds, 42 seconds ahead of his brother, Gary, who took third. Second place was taken by Ronan Byrne, the under-23 heavyweight. Shane O’Driscoll and Mark O’Donovan did not compete through illness and injury.

Monika Dukarska was the fastest woman in the single sculls – Sanita Puspure did not compete. The Ireland crew of Aileen Crowley and Aifric Keogh took first pace in the pair – but had only three seconds to spare over Tara Hanlon and Emily Hegarty. The Fermoy junior pair of Eliza O’Reilly and Gill McGirr showed good form to take third.

Conditions changed at the end of the session.

#Rowing: Both of Ireland’s competitors made the semi-finals of the women’s single sculls at the World Cup in Lucerne. Sanita Puspure won her quarter-final, while Monika Dukarska took a comfortable third in hers.

Puspure had tough opponents. She battled it out with Felice Mueller of the United States and Ekaterina Karsten of Belarus throughout. They moved away from the rest of the field and though all three were all but guaranteed to take the qualification places, Puspure finished impressively to win.

Dukarska’s third was a clear one. Again, three women broke free. Carling Zeeman took over to win, with Annekatrin Thiele of Germany second and Dukarska not far behind – over 11 seconds clear of Eeva Karppinen of Finland in fourth.

#Rowing: Monika Dukarska and Sanita Puspure both qualified for the quarter-finals of the women’s single sculls at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne today.

Dukarska drew Magdalena Lobnig, the holder of the world’s best time in the event, in her heat. The Killorglin woman stuck with the Austrian as others let her go and finished second.

Puspure also took second in her heat, refusing to let Britain’s Victoria Thornley dominate the race. The two matched each other over the final stages, though both eased up coming to the line, with Thornley taking the victory by two seconds.

#Rowing: Monika Dukarska has been chosen to represent Ireland at the third World Cup Regatta in Lucerne early next month. The Killorglin woman finished ninth (third in the B Final) on her first foray as a single sculler at a World Cup event, in Poznan in Poland last weekend. She joins Sanita Puspure, who won the B Final in Poland. The Ireland lightweight pair of Shane O’Driscoll and Mark O’Donovan, who have taken gold in the previous two World Cups and in the European Championships will hope to continue their run. The lightweight double of Paul and Gary O’Donovan were silver medallists at the Europeans and in the World Cup in Poznan.

#Rowing: Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll won their test race of the lightweight pair at the World Cup Regatta in Poznan, Poland this morning. Britain tested them through three-quarters of the race, but held off when it was clear they would again have to give way to the men in green.

Sanita Puspure and Monika Dukarska finished third and fourth in their heat and missed out on direct qualification in the heats of the women’s single sculls. New Zealand’s Hannah Osborne won a battle with Puspure to take second behind the dominant Vicky Thornley of Britain.

The Ireland pair of Aifric Keogh and Aileen Crowley took fourth in their heat.
