#Rowing: Niall Kenny lost out in the first round of the Diamond Sculls to a much heavier opponent at Henley Royal Regatta today. Kenny (28) won a silver medal at the World Under-23 Championships in 2010 as part of the Ireland lightweight quadruple, but at 75 kg here he had a disadvantage of 23 kilogrammes against Jonathan Stimpson. The Briton powered into an early lead and won well.
