#Rowing: Ireland’s Ciara Moynihan and Ciara Browne finished third in their repechage of the junior women’s double at the World Junior Championships in Racice this morning. There were two spots available in the A/B semi-final, and Britain and Japan held them as the crews passed the 1750 metre marker. Moynihan and Browne sprinted hard to the line but could not quite catch second-placed Japan.

 The Ireland double’s time would have put them through in two of the other three repechages. They go on to the C/D semi-finals.

 The Ireland pair of Eliza O’Reilly and Gill McGirr qualified for the A/B semi-finals, while the men’s quadruple also face into C/D semi-finals.
