This is Canada's first gold in the women's eight since
@MarnieMcB was there today watching and of course Marnie and Kathleen Heddle were in the boat in that 1992 golden race
What a moment #Tokyo2020
“After the magnificent success in women’s rowing yesterday, today we celebrate Ireland’s first Olympic gold medal in rowing, won so deservedly by Paul O'Donovan and Fintan McCarthy in the lightweight double sculls.”
Can't help but get angry that British rowing (with its public school associations) gets £25m funding from UK Sport, and have massively underperformed, but a gold medal winning working class BMX rider from Essex had to crowd fund herself.
