The Irish In Action On Day 6: Harrington Tees Off, O'Donovan Brothers Have A Bit Of Craic

The Irish In Action On Day 6: Harrington Tees Off, O'Donovan Brothers Have A Bit Of Craic
By Jack Cahill Updated

Lots of Irish Olympians in action on day 6, with much of it unfortunately happening at roughly the same time of 1p.m. But fear not, there's a steady stream of Irish competition thereafter. 



Men's Individual 


Padraig Harrington and Seamus Power tee off in round 1 of the Men's individual golf. Harrington, who has spent over 300 weeks in the Official World Golf Ranking, will be aware that taking gold will secure him exemptions into next years Masters and US Open. Round 2 will tee off on Friday at 10.30. Hon the lads.


The rowing was cancelled on day 5 due to strong winds around Lagoa.


Women's lightweight double sculls: Semi-final 


Sinead Lynch and Ciara Lambe are competing in semi-final A/B 2 in the Lagoa stadium. and will be in lane 5.  The two finished second in their qualifying heat on Monday, losing out to South Africa.


 Men's Lightweight Double Sculls 


The O'Donovan brothers are in action again after winning Heat 1 on Monday. Gary and Paul will be looking to follow on from that performance with a another strong outing, weather permitting. Although they aren't scared of a bit of wind to be fair to the lads. Keeps your eyes open for another world class lesson on Cork etymology.




Women's Singles Prelims 



Chloe Magee is competing in the Badminton preliminary round. Her Group P match is against Wang Yihan of China at 1.00pm.


Field Hockey

Men's tournament



Ireland face Canada in what will be their third match so far. Things haven't been going well for Ireland in Group B for Ireland and they sit joint bottom with Canada on 0 points after losses to India, Netherlands and Germany. Ireland can take heart though as they played well against Germany, only being edged out 3-2 after a closely fought match. Ireland can still qualify if they beat Argentina, who must also lose to Germany.




Men's welterweight 69kg


Steven Donnelly fights Mongolia's Byambyn Tuvshinbat in the round of 16 at 3.45. Donnelly came through the previous round with a 3-0 win over Algeria's Zohir Kedache. His opponent Tuvshinbat, also came through with a unanimous decision over Argentina's Alberto Palmetta.



Men's 50m Freestyle


Shane Ryan is competing in Heat 6  in lane 6. Suspicious? Probably not. Ryan has already competed in the 100m backstroke where he made it to the semi-finals before being eliminated. He also competed in the 100m freestyle but couldn't make it into the semi-finals.
