Lambe Must Do It Again at World Rowing Championships

#WorldRowingChampionships: Claire Lambe finished third in her heat and must compete in a repechage as she seeks a place in the semi-finals at the World Rowing Championships in Chungju in Korea. The Dubliner led early in the battle of the lightweight single scullers, but Ursula Grobler of South Africa powered into the lead after 500 metres and went on to win well. Alena Kryvasheyenka of Belarus took over in second after halfway, with Lambe third ahead of scullers from Singapore and Indonesia.

Lightweight Single Sculls – Heat Three (First Two Directly to A/B Semi-Finals; Rest to Repechage): 1 South Africa (U Grobler) 7:58.84, 2 Belarus (A Kryvasheyenka) 8:04.59; 3 Ireland (C Lambe) 8:16.06, 4 Singapore 8:34.99, 5 Indonesia 8:54.69.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
