Finding Balance by Philip Doyle
Let me introduce myself, my name is Philip Doyle, a 30-year-old doctor, and rower. For the past five years I’ve been qualified in the NHS and have been on the Irish National Squad for the same amount of time. I have been dipping in and out of both rowing and medicine, but never truly leaving one behind. I want to share a bit of how 2018/19 went for me and how this period was, in retrospect, one of the most difficult times for me that required balance and skills I was unaware I was utilising at the time.

On August 4th, 2020 a monstrous blast flattened the port of Beirut. There was a tremendous loss of life and destruction of property. The lives lost can never be replaced, but the community can work to rebuild and overcome. Collateral damage in this blast was the Lebanese Rowing Federation. Our rowing community stretches across the globe. Consider helping out our fellow rowers in need!
