Sean Casey must finish ahead of at least one silver medallist from Beijing if he's to qualify for the A/B semi-finals of the single scull at the World Championships. Casey’s fifth-place finish in the heat on the single sculls in Poznan in Poland sees him seeking a top-two place in a repechage on Tuesday which features Ondrej Synek of the Czech Republic, second in Beijing in this event, and Jueri Jaanson of Estonia, the Olympic silver medallist in the double scull.
