COULD SINEAD MAKE OLYMPICS BACK IN THE BOAT?

first_imgDONEGAL all-round athlete Sinead Jennings may make the Olympics after all…back rowing for Ireland.The Letterkenny woman was heart-broken earlier this month when a bid to qualify for London 2012 was crushed when a tyre burst in a team-mate’s bike during a race in Kazakhstan.As rowers gather in Newry this weekend for trials, Sinead has been forced to miss out – this time because of injury. But the trials process continues with an assessment in February and the national trial in April, and Jennings hopes she may still be able to take part.It would be a massive boost for her – and the county.Ireland could form two women’s crews for the Olympic qualifiers in May in Lucerne, with Sinead in one of the boats!After failing in her bid for London on two wheels, Sinead told donegaldaily.com: “It was very disappointing. It’s good to know we gave it everything though and so no regrets. “I really appreciate all the Donegal support and good wishes.  It makes such a difference.”Sinead is pictured above winning a world silver.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comCOULD SINEAD MAKE OLYMPICS BACK IN THE BOAT? was last modified: November 25th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:sinead jenningslast_img
