Rowing: World Cup – Bled Highlights
Highlights from the World Cup at Lake Bled, Slovenia, the first of the summer’s three regattas that bring together the world’s best rowers.

With the 2012 Olympics now only two years away, the World Cup is a key barometer ahead of the London Games. Great Britain won their third successive series last season, but they will face a real challenge from Germany, who topped the medal table at the 2009 world championships. Commentary comes from Garry Herbert and Dan Topolski.
 
The highlights programme will also be available on the BBC iPlayer for 7 days from Monday 31/05/10.

A live results viewer is also available on the World Rowing website
