#ROWING: Claire Lambe competed well to finish second in her repechage this morning and qualify for this afternoon’s A Final of the lightweight single scull at the World Cup Regatta in Belgrade. The 21-year-old Dubliner was always in the thick of the action and led in the closing stages before she was passed by Pamela Weisshaupt of Switzerland in the final 250 metres. Weisshaupt (33) was world champion in this discipline in 2008 and 2009 and silver medallist last year.
