Ireland's silver medal-winning men's lightweight double sculls pair are looking to go one better at Tokyo 2020 after taking silver in Rio.

Gary and Paul O'Donovan narrowly missed out on gold after they pushed the French pair all the way in their final on Friday.

Despite their trademark slow start, the Cork pair managed to secure Ireland's first ever Olympic rowing medal in a nail-biting finish.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport after they had a chance to rest their weary limbs and let the result sink in somewhat, Paul said the aim for Tokyo is to move up to the top step of the podium.
