Dilleen Fights Her Way to Semi-Final

Lisa Dilleen produced a terrific performance to finish third in her repechage and qualify for the A/B semi-finals of the women’s single scull at the World Under-23 Championships at Brest in Belarus.

The Galway woman moved into third place just before halfway, but to hold it she had to fight off the challenge of Russia’s Mayya Reznikova, who had drawn level by 1750 metres.

The Czech Republic’s Denisa Cvancarova won, with Britain’s Rosamund Bradbury second. Dilleen was .15 of a second ahead of Reznikova in third.
