Puspure Second in Heat at World Cup in Lucerne

10th July 2015
Puspure Second in Heat at World Cup in Lucerne

#Rowing: Sanita Puspure took second place in her heat of the women’s single sculls at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne. There was just one qualification place on offer, and this was taken with aplomb by Kim Crow of Australia. Puspure was the one other competitor who put any pressure on Crow, but the in-form sculler had a clearwater lead down the course and won by over eight seconds.

Denise Walsh finsihed third in her heat of the lightweight single sculls. The race was won in stunning fashion by Zoe McBride of New Zealand, and she took the one qualification place for the A Final.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie 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.

Afloat.ie 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.
