Lambe and McCrohan withdrawn

April 13, 2012

The lightweight women’s double of Claire Lambe and Siobhán McCrohan who were due to compete in an international regatta in Piediluco in Italy today have been withdrawn.

“There is a consistent weight management issue in this crew,” said Ireland performance director Martin McElroy.

The crew struggled last year as McCrohan found it difficult to make the weight. A crew member can compete at up to 59kg, while the average weight in the boat cannot exceed 57kg. They were seen as Ireland’s best hope of qualifying a boat for the London Olympics but may not take part in next month’s Olympic Qualifier.
