Walsh Keeps Good Results Coming at World Under-23 Rowing Championships

#WorldUnder-23Rowing: Denise Walsh qualified for the Semi-finals with a controlled performance which brought her the second of two qualification places in lightweight single sculls at the World Under-23 Championships this morning in Linz in Austria. The Skibbereen woman started well and led, but even when Belgium’s Eveline Peleman took over in the lead Walsh stuck to her task and held off Helena Pavkovic of Croatia for second place. Walsh was still looking fresh at the finish.
