World Rowing Championships | Team Announcement

Watch Fintan McCarthy as he revisits the moment he became Olympic Champion

The third video in the mini-docuseries reflecting back on some of the stories behind the Team Ireland Tokyo medallists revisits Fintan McCarthy’s Olympic Gold medal moment. The Skibbereen rower along with Paul O’Donovan, will forever be remembered as winning Ireland’s first Gold medal in rowing at the Olympic Games. Now they turn their focus on doing it all over again.
