World Cup II Results from Poznan

Well done to Monika on her win in the Women’s Single Scull repechage which earned her a place in the A/B semifinal on Saturday, where she placed fourth, narrowly missing out on A final qualification by 1.6 of a second. Well raced Monika showing great courage and fight right to the finish.

On Sunday Monika contested the B Final and finished 3rd  achieving 9th place overall in the world ranking. Well done Monika, we are so proud of you and Michael.

This super result comes from years of training and hands on coaching by Monika and Michael – all year round, rain, hail or shine.

Leaving Cert 2017

Good luck to everyone who is starting their state exams tomorrow and in particular our rowers who work hard on managing both – the studies and training!

Don’t forget to keep your body active during the exam period – exercise helps to reduce stress and energise the mind! It is recommended that you exercise 30min after school – prior to study and again 30min in the evening (a short study break). You will feel reinvigorated after exercise and it will help to relieve the clutter in the brain.

TRY IT!

Good luck guys – you’ll be grand!
