# ROWING: Lisa Dilleen showed her experience to impressive effect as she qualified for the A/B semi-finals of the World Under-23 single scull in Lithuania by placing second in her first race. Two places were on offer from the heat and Rikke Quist of Denmark took a firm hold of first place early and did not let go. Behind her the Daphne Socha of France showed well early in the contest, but Dilleen – who has competed at this level as both a junior and under-23 athlete - passed her with a push after half way and then did enough to repel the charge of Madison Lips of the United States.

# 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.

The Ireland men’s four also finished fourth in their heat and will join the pair in tomorrow’s repechages.

# ROWING: Isolda Penney, who beat Sanita Puspure in the semi-final, had an impressive win in the final of the Princess Royal at Henley Royal Regatta this morning. The 37-year-old Canadian took control early and extended a one-length lead at the Barrier to a margin of ‘easily’ by the finish.

The Canadian quadruple which beat the UCC/London Rowing Club crew in the Queen Mother led almost almost all the way down the course in their final, but were beaten by the National Rowing Centre of Excellence, Australia, who finished with a decisive push.

# ROWING: Sanita Puspure was beaten in the semi-final of the Princess Royal at Henley Royal Regatta this evening. The woman who will represent Ireland in rowing at London 2012 fought out a close duel with Isolda Penney of Canada, who was behind until the middle of the race. The Canadian, in the preferable Berks station, pushed into the lead and held off Puspure to eventually win by two lengths.

Penney’s victory was a surprise, but the 37-year-old, who holds joint US/Canadian citizenship, is a serious competitor. She was third in the US trial held before the Olympic Qualifier in Lucerne this year. The trial was won by Genevra Stone, who went on to finish third at the Qualifier, one place ahead of Puspure.

Kaisa Pajusalu of Estonia, who lost out in that Olympic Qualifier (she finished sixth in the Final)  won  the other semi-final of the Princess Royal after a good race with Laura Schiavone of Italy.

# 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.
