#Rowing: Ireland’s Ciara Moynihan and Ciara Browne finished third in their repechage of the junior women’s double at the World Junior Championships in Racice this morning. There were two spots available in the A/B semi-final, and Britain and Japan held them as the crews passed the 1750 metre marker. Moynihan and Browne sprinted hard to the line but could not quite catch second-placed Japan.

 The Ireland double’s time would have put them through in two of the other three repechages. They go on to the C/D semi-finals.

 The Ireland pair of Eliza O’Reilly and Gill McGirr qualified for the A/B semi-finals, while the men’s quadruple also face into C/D semi-finals.

#Rowing: Ireland just missed out on a place in the A/B semi-finals of the junior men’s quadruple at the World Junior Championships in Racice, Czech Republic. The crew of Luke Hayes Nally, Alex Byrne, Jack Dorney and Jack Keating finished third to Denmark and Chile, with just two boats going on; the race was fast, setting a new record for this event at a World Junior Championships.

 Chile had led through most of the race, with Denmark never far away. Ireland moved into a clear third place. In the final 300 metres Denmark charged into the lead and flew away from Chile. Ireland did their best to catch Chile, but the South Americans kept their nerve well and held on to the crucial second spot by a length.  

 Ireland go to the C/D Semi-Finals. Earlier the women's junior pair of Eliza O'Reilly and Gill McGirr had qualified for the A/B Semi-Finals.

#Rowing: Ireland’s junior men’s quadruple took fourth in their heat and the junior women’s double fifth at the World Junior Championships at Racice in the Czech Republic.

 Two boats qualified for the semi-finals from the heats of the quadruple, and Switzerland, New Zealand and Italy vied for these places in the second half of the race, with Italy missing out. Ireland were next in line.

 Greece were convincing winners of their heat of the women’s double, grabbing hold of the one semi-final place on offer. Ciara Moynihan and Ciara Browne held fifth through the race.

 Earlier, the Ireland junior men’s coxed four qualified from their heat. The junior women’s pair took fourth and face into a repechage.

 The schedule was brought forward and races run at five-minute intervals because of the forecast of very high temperatures in the middle of the day.

#WorldJuniorRowing: Ireland’s Bridget Jacques and Hilary Shinnick missed out on the A Final of the women’s double sculls at the World Junior Championships at Trakai in Lithuania.

The first three from today’s A/B semi-final made it into tomorrow’s A Final, and Romania took the most direct route, leading down the course to win. Behind them an exciting battle unfolded. Through the second half of the race, Germany, Ireland and Australia effectively competed for two places. At 1500 metres, Germany held second and Australia third, clear of Ireland. Australia upped the ante and closed up on Germany, and while the Ireland crew pushed hard in the closing stages they couldn’t head either of their rivals. Australia passed Germany to take second. Ireland finished 2.8 seconds down on Germany in fourth. They are set to compete in tomorrow’s B Final.
