#Rowing: The Ireland women’s four took fifth place, 11th overall, in their B Final at the World Cup in Poznan this morning.
Britain Two won an interesting race. Poland held the early lead, with Ireland, Germany and New Zealand not far behind. As Poland dropped back – and Croatia dropped out – the lead was taken over by New Zealand. However, Britain Two and Germany were the strongest crews in the second 1,000 metres, with Britain snatching the win from Germany by five hundredths of a second.
New Zealand were third and Ireland were over a length behind fourth-placed Poland.
Ireland finished sixth in the B Final of the women’s pair, 12th overall. In a close race, the United States Two won from Germany and Chile. Behind them, one second covered Italy Two, China Two and Ireland.
