Recovering from the setbacks due to illness which affected her 2013 season, Sanita Puspure continues from strength to strength, winning the B Final in Lucerne with what the Irish Times referred to as a commanding performance. Level at half way with Erichsen (the Danish Sculler, who won a silver medal at the London Olympics), Sanita pushed through for the last 500m to win by over a length ahead of Russian Levina with Denmark’s Erichsen coming in third.
A great performance by the OC sculler, according to Ireland high-performance director Morten Espersen “Sanita is not far from where the medals will be”. As ever, we wish her the very best. You can keep up to date with Sanita’s progress by following her on Twitter. In a recent post, Sanita tweeted a picture of Mother’s race at her children’s’ sports day – wouldn’t fancy anyone else’s chances!
