Still basking in the glow of the country’s first-ever Olympic rowing medal—compliments of those podium-pants-loving O’Donovan brothers—Rowing Ireland has announced it is tapping former Australian under-23 coach Antonio Maurogiovanni for its vacant high-performance director role. Maurogiovanni, who rowed in the 1988 and 1992 Olympics for his native Italy, has also guided Italian and Dutch crews on the international stage, and served previously as head coach at the Western Australia Institute of Sport. He replaces Morten Espersen, who resigned following the Rio Games.
