#Rowing: Ireland took two medals on the second day of the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Poznan, Poland today. The Ireland pair of Tara Hanlon and Amy Mason rowed to a fine second place behind Britain, putting pressure on the long-time leaders coming up to the line. The junior quadruple of Lucy Taylor, Hannah Scott, Fiona Chestnutt and Margaret Cremen took bronze in their final. They were fourth until halfway, but put in a fine second 1,000 metres, taking over a clear third as Italy faded back. Switzerland took gold ahead of Britain.
The junior men’s four finished second in their B Final, and the junior men’s quad were 4th in theirs, one place ahead of the Netherlands.

#Rowing: Ireland crews placed fifth in two A Finals at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Poznan, Poland. The women’s quadruple were involved in a battle for the second to fifth places with Switzerland, Hungary and Britain, but missed out in the drive for the line. The pair of Tara Hanlon and Amy Mason were well in the hunt early on. But in the cross-tail conditions they had steering problems in the final third of the race and faded back from second at half way to be out of the medal placings at the finish.
The junior men’s four and quadruple were second and fourth in their B Finals.
All the crews get another chance in heats and finals tomorrow, Sunday.
