Paul wins Gold at the Rowing World Championships
Congratulations to Quercus Sports Scholar, Paul O'Donovan, who won Gold in the Lightweight Men's Double Schulls with his partner, Fintan McCarthy, at the Rowing World Championships in the Czech Republic over the weekend!
The outcome of the race was never in doubt with Paul & Fintan taking the lead half way through the race and pulling away to claim Gold. Italy claimed Silver and the Ukraine claimed Bronze.
We are delighted for Paul, a GEM student, who not only makes us proud with his sporting and educational successes but always finds some way of making us laugh. Those of you with twitter will be able to view Paul's comedic talents here.
