The Irish men's lightweight four of Gearoid Towey Eugene Coakley Richard Archibald and Paul Griffin took Bronze in the World Championship final at Eton.

They finished a tenth of a second behind France who took silver as the emerging Chinese took Gold.

The Irish women's lightweight double of Sinéad Jennings and Niamh Ní Cheilleachair won their B final impressively this morning and went on to finish seventh overall.

They took up the lead at halfway in what was a particularly strong field.

They were never headed from that point, and comfortably led the charge to the line, significantly ahead of Poland, USA and world champions Germany.
