#ROWING: Paul O’Donovan put in a brilliant second 1,000 metres to secure a semi-final place in the lightweight single sculls at the World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam today. O’Donovan needed to finish in the top three of the quarter-final to progress, but he was was fifth at half way, over one-and-a-half seconds behind third-placed Steffen Jensen of Denmark, with Russia’s Alexandr Tufanyuk fighting it out with Lars Hartig of Germany at the head of the field. O’Donovan turned it on in the second half. As the Russian faded, the Irishman took over in third behind Hartig and Jensen, and then passed the Dane to take second – just over a second behind Hartig.

 In a major shock, the World Under-23 champion, Andrew Campbell Jr of the United States, made his exit when he fell out of the boat in the immediately preceding heat.

#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.
