Semi-Final Place for McCrohan

9th July 2010
Semi-Final Place for McCrohan

Siobhan McCrohan came third in her quarter-final of the lightweight single scull at the World Cup in Lucerne, securing a place in the semi-finals. The Galway woman led early on, but Erika Bello of Italy and Fabiana Beltrame of Brazil passed her in the second half of the race.

The lightweight men’s pair of Peter Hanily and Anthony English, an under-23 crew, came very close to landing a place in the A/B semi-finals. Even in the early stages of this repechage Canada and Italy were in charge of the first two qualification places. Ireland led a battle for third until the closing stages, when they were pipped by Hong Kong.

Cathal Moynihan finished last in his quarter-final of the lightweight men’s single scull and the men’s pair of Cormac Folan and Sean Jacob were fifth in their repechage. Both crews missed out on A/B semi-Finals.

Sarah Dolan and Claire Lambe saw Poland and China claim the two semi-final places in the repechages of the lightweight double scull. The Irish were a close-up fourth behind Germany in third.
