#Rowing: Sanita Puspure secured an A Final spot at the World Rowing Championships today. The Old Collegians sculler took a close-up second in her semi-final of the single sculls. Puspure produced an intelligent, gutsy performance. In a tight contest she moved at halfway to secure a place in the top three; after the 1500 metres mark she charged again, and was just three-hundredths of a second behind Jeannine Gmelin of Switzerland, who qualified in first. Behind them, Magdalena Lobnig of Austria just ousted Felice Mueller of the US for third.
