#ROWING: The Rower of the Month for June is Sanita Puspure. The single sculler from the Old Collegians club won her place in the A Final of the World Cup at Aiguebelette in France, where she finished sixth. It was confirmation that the Latvian-born competitor who now lives in Cork has established herself in this demanding discipline. She will compete in the final World Cup of the season, in Lucerne in Switzerland, next weekend.

The Ireland Olympian wins the award for the second successive month, having also taken it in May, when she took bronze at the European Championships.

Rower of the Month awards: The judging panel is made up of Liam Gorman, rowing correspondent of The Irish Times and David O'Brien, Editor of Afloat magazine. Monthly awards for achievements during the year will appear on afloat.ie and the overall national award will be presented to the person or crew who, in the judges' opinion, achieved the most notable results in, or made the most significant contribution to rowing during 2014. Keep a monthly eye on progress and watch our 2014 champions list grow.
