#Rowing:  Sanita Puspure battled through awful conditons to take second place in her heat and qualifiy for the quarter finals of the single sculls at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Carling Zeeman of Canada won the race well, with Puspure content - after an early struggle -  to let her go and secure one of the other two quarter-finals places on offer.  Nadia Negm of Egypt, struggling with her steering, actually pushed past Puspure at 1500 metres, but Puspure passed her in the better water in the final quarter.

 Alan Campbell, competing for Britain, won his heat of the men's single sculls. The Coleraine man led from early on and easily qualified for the quarter-finals.
