Lambe Takes Silver Medal at World University Rowing Championships

# ROWING: Ireland’s Claire Lambe took silver at the World University Rowing Championships in Kazan in Russia this morning. Kirsten McCann of South Africa got ahead of her at the start and maintained the lead under pressure from Lambe to take gold.

Lambe, a UCD student, was capping off a good season in the lightweight single sculls: she took fourth in World Under-23 Championships and 11th in the senior World Championships.

Ireland’s Niall Kenny finished fifth in his A Final of the lightweight single sculls and the women’s four were sixth in theirs.
