21st March 2018

#Rowing: Paul O’Donovan took fifth place in the eight-man final of the Open Single Sculls at the Sydney International Rowing Regatta. The Skibbereen man held seventh place through much of the early part of the race, but closed up to the leaders in the second 1,000 metres. However, he was sculling into a headwind and he did not completely close the gap to the medal positions.
