Glover and Stanning safely through to world cup semis

Helen Glover and Heather Stanning topped the time-sheet in their heat of the women’s pair at the world cup in Aiguebelette this morning.

In sparkling sunshine and rowing on flat-calm water the duo were over seven seconds ahead of their nearest challengers in the time-trial format being used here somewhat unusually.

This picture, taken by Peter Spurrier of Intersport Images, above shows them moving away from the start. They finished in 7:02.69 against 7:11.00 for the second placed USA4.
