Dukarska Fourth at World Coastal Rowing Championships
Monika Dukarska finished fourth at the Fisa World Coastal Rowing Championships in Bari in Italy today. The Killorglin oarswoman pushed hard for a medal position in the closing stages but could not close the narrow gap on Diane Delalleau of France, who took bronze.  Another Frenchwoman, Charlotte Culty, took the gold. Ireland’s Sheila Clavin finished an excellent sixth in her debut in this event.

John Keohane finished seventh in the A Final of the men’s singles. The winner, Guiseppe Alberti of Italy, finished in 29 minutes 28.60 seconds, while the Corkman was one minute 45.90 seconds further back.
