#Rowing: Ireland finished sixth in the B Final of the under-23 quadruple at the World Rowing Championships in Rotterdam today. The Irish made a false start and held sixth down the course, though they never lost touch with the rest of the crews in the fierce heat. The race for top spot, and seventh in the world, was an enthralling one: Russia and France jousted, with the Russians finishing very well to win.
