Rowing: Lightweight 4 out

Ireland’s lightweight four have failed to make the Olympic final after they finished fourth in their semi-final.
The crew of Paul Griffin (stroke), Richard Archibald, Gearoid Towey and Cathal Moynihan (bow) started well in heat B and by halfway at 1000m, were still in contention for a top three place and the final. But they faded in the last 250m, and at the finish were well behind winners Denmark; France and Great Britain (whose crew includes Richard Chambers a former team -mate of Richard Archibald at Coleraine Inst).
