Heather Stanning and her rowing partner Helen Glover - ranked the ninth and 10th sweep rowers in the GB women's squad - secured their silver with an assured performance in the women’s pairs.

They finished a length ahead of world champions, the United States, who snatched bronze, while a raucous home crowd cheered the Kiwi pair to gold.

Heather said ‘I definitely think we came to the final thinking we needed to be on the podium. I suppose other people probably didn't think that but we knew we had it within us’.

This represents a terrific achievement and we wish them every success as they move towards London 2012.
