The Ireland under-23 lightweight quadruple scull finished sixth in their A Final at the World Cup in Lucerne. France made the pace for much of the race, but it was World Champions Italy who took gold. Germany took silver and France bronze.

The Ireland crew, formed in the run-up to this event, were a little off the pace all through. They will have gained invaluable experience from competing at this level, said Ireland performance director Martin McElroy.

McCrohan Sixth in A Final

Siobhan McCrohan finished sixth in the A Final of the lightweight single scull at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne. The 23-year-old did well in the early stages and was second at 500 metres. However, as her opponents made their moves in a good race McCrohan dropped back. Alexandra Tsiavou of Greece, who led for most of the 2,000 metres, was pushed into silver medal position by Marie-Louise Draeger of Germany. Fabiana Beltrame of Brazil took the bronze medal.

Siobhan McCrohan and the lightweight men’s quadruple scull grabbed A Final spots this morning at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne.

McCrohan (23) raced into the final of the lightweight single scull, taking second place to Alexandra Tsiavou of Greece in the semi-final, where three boats go through. McCrohan and Erika Bello of Italy disputed second for much of the race. In the final 500 metres, as Bello and Eri Wakai of Japan made their charges, McCrohan held on to take a clear second ahead of the Italian.

The repechage of the lightweight quadruple scull was a mad dash as four crews from six tried to make it through to the A Final. Denmark moved into pole position early, but Ireland, Brazil and two German crews were all in a fight for the three other places. The Irish crew of Niall Kenny, Michael Maher, Mark O’Donovan and Justin Ryan did well to push through to third at the end, with the two German crews taking the other qualification places.

“You make a mistake in a race like that and it’s all over,” said Ireland performance director Martin McElroy. “They did a really good job.”

 He added: "Siobhan did what she needed to do. Two A Finals is a a good start."

Irish crews took part in four competitive C Finals. The men’s open and lightweight pairs both finished third, placing them 15th overall. Sanita Puspure in the women’s single finished fourth (16th) and the lightweight women’s double sixth (18th). Cathal Moynihan took fourth in this D Final of the lightweight single scull (22nd).

Siobhan McCrohan came third in her quarter-final of the lightweight single scull at the World Cup in Lucerne, securing a place in the semi-finals. The Galway woman led early on, but Erika Bello of Italy and Fabiana Beltrame of Brazil passed her in the second half of the race.

The lightweight men’s pair of Peter Hanily and Anthony English, an under-23 crew, came very close to landing a place in the A/B semi-finals. Even in the early stages of this repechage Canada and Italy were in charge of the first two qualification places. Ireland led a battle for third until the closing stages, when they were pipped by Hong Kong.

Cathal Moynihan finished last in his quarter-final of the lightweight men’s single scull and the men’s pair of Cormac Folan and Sean Jacob were fifth in their repechage. Both crews missed out on A/B semi-Finals.

Sarah Dolan and Claire Lambe saw Poland and China claim the two semi-final places in the repechages of the lightweight double scull. The Irish were a close-up fourth behind Germany in third.

Ireland had an encouraging start to the final World Cup regatta at Lucerne this morning with a convincing win for Siobhan McCrohan in her heat of the lightweight single scull. Cathal Moynihan also qualified for the quarter finals of the men’s lightweight single, finishing third in his heat.

The lightweight quadruple put up a tremendous fight in their heat. A win would have taken then straight through to the final and Niall Kenny, Michael Maher, Mark O’Donovan and Justin Ryan pushed reigning world champions Italy (with three of that crew competing) to the line before taking second. Peter Hanily and Anthony English finished fourth in their heat of the lightweight pair, two places outside qualification.

The men’s pair of Cormac Folan (27 today) and Sean Jacob were also fourth in their heat,  two places away from a direct semi-final place.

Claire Lambe and Sarah Dolan also finished fourth in their heat of the lightweight women’s double scull.

Sanita Puspure finished third in the heat of the women’s single scull. Mirka Knapkova of the Czech Republic and Genevra Stone of the United States took the two automatic qualification places.

In the final race of the day involving the Irish team, Sanita Puspure finished fifth in a repechage won by Debbie Flood of Britain.

Queen’s University’s challenge in the Temple Cup for Student Eights ended with a narrow defeat to ASR Nereus of the Netherlands. Neither crew could establish a clear lead for most of a remarkably close race, but Nereus found enough as the crews passed the enclosures to win. The verdict was half a length.

The evening events brought no joy for Irish-based crews at Henley Royal Regatta. Carlow gave as good as they got for much of the way in their clash with West End in the Thames Cup for club eights, but the  New Zealand crew saw off a push at around half way and powered on to a convicing win. In two of the final races of the day, Muckross suffered steering problems at the start and lost to London Rowing Club’s A crew in the Wyfold for club fours, and Cork could not match The Tideway Scullers’ School in the Britannia for club coxed fours.

Queen's A Save the Day

Queen’s A caught and beat Brock University of Canada in the quarter-final of the Temple Cup for student eights. The Belfast crew were behind at the Barrier and Fawley but moved coming up to the one-mile mark and won by three-quarters of a length in six minutes 29 seconds.

NUIG had no answer to the power of Harvard in the Ladies’ Plate for intermediate eights, with the American crew clocking 6:28 and winning by two and a half lengths. In the Princess Grace, an open event for women’s quadruple sculls, the Belfast-City of Derry-Carrick-on-Shannon crew came up against the British national quad and were never in contention.
