Kenny and Ryan Impress at Duisburg

16th May 2010
Kenny and Ryan Impress at Duisburg

Niall Kenny, from NUIG, and Justin Ryan of UCC finished second to Germany in a very competitive under-23 lightweight double scull final at the Wedau International Regatta in Duisburg. The Irish were the only crew to stay in touch with Clemens Hubler and Matthias Arnold, who made up half of the German lightweight quadruple which took silver at the World Under-23 Championships last year. Italy’s Davide Babboni and Tommaso Sacchini, well back in third place, were the bronze medallists in the lightweight double scull at last year’s Under-23 World Championships.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
