#Rowing: Paul and Gary O’Donovan won their repechage to secure a place in the semi-finals of the lightweight double sculls at the European Rowing Championships in Racice today. The Irish crew did not start well, but by halfway they were making their move and they led through the second half of the race. As they passed the grandstand, they came under pressure from the Ukraine, but they held firm and won by a length.

#ROWING: Sweden pushed Ireland out of the vital second spot in the repechage of the lightweight double sculls at the World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam today. The race developed into a three-boat battle to land the two spots in the A/B Semi-Finals: world champions Italy and Ireland, who had a very good third quarter, led early leaders Sweden at 1500 metres. The Swedes came back, however, and pipped Ireland by .51 of a second. Ireland's Claire Lambe and Denise Walsh are now set to compete in the C/D Semi-Finals.
