#Rowing: Ireland's junior women's double of Aoife Casey and Emily Hegarty finished sixth in the B Final of the World Rowing Chmpionships this morning. The race featured a battle of wills over most of the course between leaders France and challengers Spain. The Spaniards came through to win. Ireland and New Zealand battled to take fifth, with New Zealand taking it by just over a second.
The programme had to be postponed twice because of thunder and lightning storms. There was a strong tailwind, but the course was deemed fair and lanes were not redrawn as they had been on the Saturday.
