New Red Bull Documentary Featuring Irish O’Donovan Brothers
Way of the Wildcard is a series produced by Red Bull, telling the story of unexpected athletes succeeding in the most unlikely circumstances.
The latest episode features brothers Paul and Gary O’Donovan who, in 2016, became household personalities by winning silver in the men’s lightweight double sculls at the 2016 Olympic Games.
In what is commonly – and mistakenly – regarded as sport for the elite, this fascinating short documentary explains the O’Donovan Brothers’ start in Rowing; as well as shedding light on one of Europe’s most successful and unique rowing clubs you’ve never heard of.
