# ROWING: Padddy Hegarty of Skibbereen and Bridget Jacques of Belfast Boat Club topped the rankings among the junior athletes at the Irish Trials in the National Rowing Centre in Cork. The announcement of results and the squads for the World Junior Championships and Coupe de la Jeunesse was delayed for hours after a computer problem. There were a number of queries of the original selection and changes were made. A decision on Home International squads will be made in the coming weeks.

# ROWING: John Keohane was the fastest man at the Ireland Trials at National Rowing Centre in Cork today. However, the Lee Valley heavyweight was just nine hundredths of a second ahead of lightweight sculler Paul O’Donovan in the Time Trial. The 19-year-old from Skibbereen was assessed to have a percentage of world’s best time in his grade of 94.8 per cent – albeit with a strong tail wind. The conditions were forecast to deteriorate as the day went on and on-the-water work was done early in the morning.
