#INDOORROWING: Irish indoor rower Jonathan Doyle took a silver medal in a remarkable race at the European Indoor Championships in Copenhagen.

Five-time Olympic medallist Eskild Ebbesen of Denmark was cheered home to a gold medal in the 40-49 lightweight grade in a world record time of 6 minutes 16.8 seconds. The Dane crept inside the old world record of 6:17.1 with a stunning final quarter of one minute 31.1 seconds. Doyle settled for silver in 6:30.3, with Briton Alastair Peake third in 6:33.4.

Doyle held the world and British titles in his class, but said it was a privelege to be involved in this race.

The men’s open lightweight class was won in 5:56.7 by Henrik Stephansen of Denmark.
