Each weekend we take a look back on the sporting highs from across Ireland and around the world through the medium of numbers. This weekend there were feats to celebrate with bats, bikes, boats and more…
Olympian Finn Lynch finished 7th at the European Laser Sailing Championships in Varna, Bulgaria over the weekend.
He was the youngest sailor to represent Ireland at an Olympic Games, competing in the Laser at Rio in 2016. His club is the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.
Shelbourne FC and Wexford Youths will contest a third Evoke.ie FAI Women’s Cup Final on November 21st after semi Final wins over Galway WFC and Peamount on Saturday.
The Wexford win came after Extra Time with Áine O’Gorman having levelled the game for Peamount with a dramatic 92nd-minute equaliser.
Gaby Lewis set a new personal best 96 runs in a second win from three One Day Crickey internationals against Zimbabwe in Harare.
Colin Keane set a new record for the number of wins ridden by an Irish flat jockey in a single season, with two wins at the Curragh on Sunday. And the season does not come to an end until October 31st.
Out of 14 European World Cup Qualifiers played on Saturday, 11 finished with the winners maintaining a clean sheet, including of course the Republic of Ireland in Azerbaijan. Remarkably not a single one of the games ended in a draw.
Pro Cyclist Dan Martin brought the curtain down on his 14-year career in the Il Lombardia race in Italy.
“I made the best of every period of my career, lived an amazing life but also kept a promise that I made to myself. That as soon as it stopped being fun I would stop. Cycling has never been about results for me, it’s been about the performance and enjoyment.”
