#Rowing: Denise Walsh took silver for Ireland at the World Cup Regatta in Belgrade this morning. The Skibbereen woman, who had won her heat with a wonderful finish, came through the field to take second behind Patricia Merz of Switzerland. Merz had established a clear lead with a quarter of the race to go, and Walsh lay in fourth at this stage. But she upped her rate, moved into medal position and then passed Poland’s Joanna Dorociak to take a second medal for Ireland. The men’s lightweight pair had earlier taken gold.

“In the race, I focused on giving a bit of reserve toward the end and focusing on the sprint. I didn’t realize how close everyone was to me, especially Patricia. Now focusing on the European Champs in the single,” Walsh told worldrowing.com.
