#Rowing: Sanita Puspure and Paul O’Donovan are the Rowers of the Month for January 2019.
The two world champions turned up for action at the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships at the University of Limerick – and both set new records for the event.
O’Donovan set a new mark as a lightweight of six minutes 6.2 seconds, while Puspure recorded 6:35.9. This matched her best and also set a new Irish record.
