# ROWING: Niall Kenny was the fastest man on the water at the Rowing Ireland National Assessments in Newry today. The 23 year old lightweight clocked 19 minutes 15 seconds for the five kilometres in the incessant rain. It was a good day for Galway competitors as the fastest crew was the heavyweight men’s pair of Fionnan McQuillan-Tolan and Sean O’Connor. Kenny was ranked as having hit 86.6 per cent of the projected world best time for his grade, but junior single sculler Bridget Jacques performed best of all on this rating, with a mark of 87.8 per cent. She was the third fastest woman after senior heavyweights Sanita Puspure and Monika Dukarska.

# ROWING: Adam Boreham of Belfast Boat Club, a heavyweight under-23 athlete, topped the rankings in ergometer (rowing machine) times on the first day of the Rowing Ireland Assessment in Newry today. Justin Ryan of Skibbereen was the fastest lightweight, with a time of six minutes 14 seconds, seven seconds slower than Boreham for the 2,000 metres. Gareth McKillen of RBAI topped a very competitive junior grade, clocking a remarkable six minutes 22 seconds.

The fastest woman was Sanita Puspure, clocking 6:40.5, and junior athlete Bridget Jacques clocked 7:04.4. The fastest lightweight was under-23 athlete Denise Walsh. Claire Lambe and Siobhan McCrohan were exempted on sick notes.

Tomorrow’s time trial on Newry Canal, scheduled for 11 o’clock, has been brought forward at least a half an hour because of concerns about the weather.

# ROWING: Martin McElroy, who was the Ireland high performance director from 2009 to 2012, has been chosen as performance director for men’s rowing in Canada. The Galway native, who is 49, came to prominence when he guided the Britain men’s eight to gold in Sydney in 2000. He and his team had some success at under-23 level in Ireland, with the highlight being a silver medal for the lightweight men’s quadruple scull at  the 2010 World Under-23 Championships. However, at Olympic level, just one Irish athlete competed at London 2012. Sanita Puspure finished 13th in the women’s single scull.

Outgoing coach Mike Spracklen, who led the Canadian men's eight to wins at the 1992 and 2008 Olympic Games as well as a silver medal at the London 2012 Games, has not had his contract renewed. A controversy has erupted at the decision, with Spracklen speaking of a vendetta by oarsman Scott Frandsen, who has criticised his methods.

# ROWING: Ireland will have three A Finalists at the World University Rowing Championships in Kazan in Russia. Niall Kenny joined Claire Lambe in the last six of the lightweight single sculls by finishing second in his semi-final this morning, and the all-Queen’s University women’s four took third in their repechage to secure their place at the top table.
