Sanita Puspure and Zoe Hyde claimed bronze for Ireland in the women's double sculls at the World Rowing Championships in the Czech Republic on Sunday.
The pair finished in 6:52.81, just ahead of the fourth-placed Austria, and behind silver medallists Netherlands (6:51.02), and gold medallists Romania (6:47.77).
It is Ireland's third medal of the championships adding to the gold won by Paul O'Donovan and Fintan McCarthy in the men's lightweight double sculls and the bronze claimed by Aoife Casey and Margaret Cremen in the women's lightweight double sculls.
"Very tight race, very good, all the way to the line," said Hyde.
"I thought we came fourth, it was just an amazing season. Sanita is a legend in the rowing community, I have been so glad to being able to race with her."
Puspure, who has won several medals in the single sculls, said she enjoyed the double sculls experience.
"It's good," she told RTÉ.
"It's a new experience for me, new challenges and I've been enjoying it so far.
"It's been really, really good. Zoe has a really good head on her for her first year of international rowing, so I'm very lucky."
