Watch: Great Moment As Paul O'Donovan's Victorious Interview Interrupted By Irish Pride

Friday was a truly great day for Irish rowing as two gold medals were secured at the World Rowing Championships in Florida.

First up were Mark O'Donovan and Shane O'Driscoll, who powered ahead of the field early on and did not relent as they cruised to first place, and we barely had enough time for the national anthem before Olympic hero Paul O'Donovan was up attempting to win his second world championship in a row.

He did so with what looked like ease to those of us watching at home, but the fact that he could barely get a word out in his post-race interview shows just how much physical exertion went in to his superb performance.


Like a trooper, he answered every question put to him, and just as he was admitting that it wouldn't be the end of the world if a member of the team that won just before his race dislodged him or his brother in the double sculls pairing, he was interrupted by Mark O'Donovan who was absolutely busting with Irish pride.

Good man! Good man! Have ye got one of these!?


Skibbereen Rowing Club provided all four Irish finalists, and the team spirit amongst them is something that will fill the entire town with pride - or, in this case, the entire country.


Well done lads, again.
