Two More Silver Medals for Ireland Juniors

Shane O’Driscoll and Paul O’Donovan added a second silver rowing medal to their collection on the final day of the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Hazewinkel in Belgium on Sunday. In a repeat of Saturday’s results, the Ireland junior double scull were again very close to gold-medal winners Hungary  – this time just .3 of a second behind.

Ireland’s junior women’s quadruple also took silver. Denise Walsh, Holly Nixon, Christine Fitzgerald and Shelly Dineen finished a close-up second to Italy. The Ireland junior men’s pair of Rodrigo Prodohl and Simon Hewitt won their B Final and the junior men’s quadruple were fourth in their B Final (10th overall).
