Katie O’Brien has been named as the Sportswoman of the Month for September 2022.

It was an outstanding performance from the Para rower in the four-boat PR2 single sculls final, the Galway woman leading from start to finish and beating reigning world champion, Kathryn Ross of Australia, by 10 seconds. Until then, her career highlight had been the World Championship bronze she won in Austria three years before, the work she had put in since then taking her to another level.
