#Rowing: Ireland’s Adrew Goff has qualified for the A/B semi-finals at the European Under-23 Rowing Championships. The UCD man finished third in his heat this morning in Kruszwica in Poland. Goff started well but, in difficult, headwind, conditions, he yielded the lead to Jan Cincibuch of the Czech Republic, who won well. Goff and Enes Yenipazarli of Turkey, who finished second, then firmly established themselves in the next two qualification places. This was by far the fastest of the heats, with all three qualifiers inside the winning time in heats one and three.
The weather has been extraordinary at the venue: the opening ceremony had to be cancelled because of torrential rain and the temperatures dropped from 30 degrees on Thursday to half that on Friday.
