Battling Lambe and Walsh Set for World Rowing Repechage

#ROWING: Claire Lambe and Denise Walsh finished third in their heat of the lightweight double sculls at the World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam today. Just one crew qualified directly for the semi-finals and Lambe and Walsh were competitive and did not let early leaders Germany break away from them. However, Australia finished faster than both and won the race.
