Ireland's Claire Lambe and Sinead Lynch have qualified for the women's lightweight double sculls final.

They finish third in their semi-final behind the Dutch in first and the Canadians in second, edging out the favoured Danes.

They were fourth at the 500m split, rising to second with 500m to go, in a tight contest with the Canadian pair.

Lambe and Lynch will now contest the A final

The Danes were closing, but the Irish duo held on to make the final.

It's a great day for Irish rowing, with Cork brothers Paul and Gary O'Donovan also through to the final of the men's lightweight double sculls.
