Walsh Capsize Ends Campaign at World Under-23 Rowing

#ROWING: Ireland’s Denise Walsh had an unfortunate end to her campaign in the World Under-23 Rowing Championships in Varese, Italy this morning. The Skibbereen woman ended up in the water at about 700 metres after a capsize in the repechage of the lightweight single sculls. Walsh was pushing for a top-two place, which would have put her in the semi-finals. New Zealand and Germany took these spots.
