Adaptive Four Make World Championships A Final

Ireland will have an A Finalist at the World Rowing Championships in New Zealand. The Legs Trunk and Arms Mixed Coxed Four won their repechage today to qualify for Thursday’s final. Ireland were second at halfway to Poland, who caught a crab near the finish and lost out on the top two finish which would have given them an A Final place.

Karol Doherty finished third in his repechage of the Arms and Shoulders single scull. He also needed to finish in the top two to make the A Final, and the Donegal man is set for a B Final on Thursday.
