Way of the Wildcard

Way of the Wildcard tells the story of unexpected athletes succeeding in the most unlikely circumstances. In 2016, Paul and Gary O’Donovan became household personalities by winning silver Men’s lightweight double sculls at the 2016 Olympic Games.

In what is commonly regarded as sport for the elite, the O’Donovan Brothers’ story explains other routes into Rowing; as well as shedding light on one of the Europe’s most successful and unique rowing clubs you’ve never heard of.
