It has been a great week for Ireland in the rowing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, with the country taking home gold and bronze in two events.
Last night Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy became the first Irish rowers to win gold medals at the Olympic Games. They won the Men’s Lightweight Double Sculls, 2000m at the Tokyo Sea Forest Waterway. They beat Germany to seize the gold.
On Wednesday morning, the Women’s team of Aifric Keogh, Eimear Lambe, Fiona Murtagh and Emily Hegarty took bronze medals in the Women’s Four 2000m rowing, the first medals for Ireland in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
We are very proud of you.
