#Rowing: Ireland’s Paul O’Donovan and Gary O’Donovan took an excellent second place behind Olympic champions France to secure their place in the A Final of the lightweight double sculls at the European Rowing Championships in Racice today. France were outstanding throughout the 2,000 metres and won by a length. Ireland were sixth at 500 metres, but began to move up the field in the second quarter. They moved through Greece and Germany before the end and saw off a challenge by the Germans coming up to the line – by eight hundredths of a second.

Italy won the second semi-final from Britain and Poland – but in a much slower time.

#Rowing: Denise Walsh qualified for the A Final of the lightweight single sculls by finishing second in her semi-final at the European Rowing Championships in Racice today. The race was won, with a dominant peformance, by Patricia Merz of Switzerland. She started well, built a clearwater lead by halfway and showed no weakness as Walsh tried to reel her in in. Italy’s Clara Guerra took third place and the other A Final spot.

In the second semi-final, Sweden’s Emma Fred won in a slightly better time than Merz’s, but she was pushed by Anastasia Lebedeva of Russia and Germany’s Leonie Pieper, who took the remaining A Final slots.
