Big Margin for O'Donovan in Newry Rowing Assessment

27th November 2011
Big Margin for O'Donovan in Newry Rowing Assessment

#ROWING–Paul O’Donovan was by far the fastest junior man of 65 in the first on-the-water session today at the National Assessments in Newry. In cold, sometimes choppy conditions on Newry canal, he fashioned a big lead over Henry Millar, who started just behind him. O’Donovan’s time of 21 minutes 58.5 seconds gave him a ranking of just 78 per cent of projected gold medal times on the ranking of the High Performance programme.
