Our high performance athletes are now moving into the final phase of their training before the World Championships and Olympic qualifiers.
Rowing Ireland are pleased to announce that HP have approached world class Italian coach, Giuseppe De Capua, to assist with training as the World Cup III in Lucerne draws near. He will be joining us early next week. Together with lead coach Don McLachlan, Giuseppe will work on strengthening the women’s double in particular, but he will also support the rest of the team.
Giuseppe is one of the most experienced coaches in Europe and we are delighted that he has expressed an interest in Rowing Ireland. He has been head coach of the Italian Olympic squad and has won a total of three Olympic medals himself, two gold and one silver.
This is an exciting venture and great news for HP. We look forward to working with Giuseppe and we welcome him to the coaching team.
