#Rowing: Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll are the Afloat Rowers of the Month for June. The Ireland lightweight pair won gold at the World Cup regatta in Poznan, their third win of the season, as in May they had also won at the first World Cup in Belgrade and at the European Championships. They would go on to win at the third World Cup in Lucerne in July, a remarkable run of wins.

 Next up for them on the international calendar is the World Championship regatta in the United States in September – and the chance of continuing their golden run.  

Rower of the Month awards: The judging panel is made up of Liam Gorman, rowing correspondent of The Irish Times, and David O'Brien, editor of Afloat magazine. Monthly awards for achievements during the year will appear on Keep a monthly eye on progress and watch our 2017 champions list grow.
