Denise Walsh and Margaret Cremen: they will form a lightweight double at the World Cup Regatta in Belgrade

 

Ireland will send four women’s crews and two men’s crews to the World Cup Regatta in Belgrade (June 1st-3rd). All six are in Olympic-class events.

Single sculler Sanita Puspure is joined by a heavyweight double of Monika Dukarska and Aileen Crowley and a pair of Emily Hegarty and Aifric Keogh, while Denise Walsh and Margaret Cremen form a lightweight double. The upswing in Ireland’s women’s crews is timely as there will be more Olympic places for women in 2020.

Olympic medallists Paul and Gary O’Donovan aim to continue their good run in the lightweight double sculls, while Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll, World Championship gold medallists in the lightweight pair, have been given the nod to move up to the heavyweight pair.

A new heavyweight group has been named to train at the National Rowing Centre, and two crews have been pre-selected for the Junior World Championships.
