#Rowing: Sanita Puspure just missed out on a semi-final place at the Olympic Games today. The 34-year-old was in a remarkably tough quarter-final, with World Champion Kimberley Brennan leading the others out and winning well. Seven-time Olympian Ekaterina Karsten tracked Brennan down the course, with Duan Jingli holding third. Puspure slipped into fourth and while she made a spirited challenge in the final stages, she just could not quite catch Karsten or the Chinese sculler.  

Alan Campbell qualified for the men's single semi-finals. The Coleraine man, competing for Britain, finished second in his quarter-final. He was just under five seconds behind the winner, Damir Martin of Croatia.
