#Rowing: Paul and Gary O’Donovan have another set of medals to add to their 2016 collection. Sculling with John Collins and Jonny Walton of Leander (the British Olympic double) they had the fastest raw time in the Directors’ Challenge Men’s Quads at the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston. While the result was given as a win for “Fruit Loops”, a Masters crew which was given a handicap, the Irish/British crew were presented with the medals.   

 In 2016 Gary and Paul won gold at the European Championships, silver at the World Cup Regatta in Italy, silver at the Olympic Games, and took winners’ medals at the Irish Open as a double. Paul also won gold at the World Championships as a lightweight single sculler and won the Irish Open single sculls.

#ROWING: The Irish challenge in the Double Sculls at Henley Royal Regatta was ended this morning as the British national crew of John Collins and Jonathan Walton beat Dave Neale and Eimantas Grigalius of Three Castles. The British, who have been finalists at the European Championships and the World Cup in Aiguebelette, were half a length up by the top of the Island and three lengths up at 500 metres. The winner was never in doubt from that point.
