OLYMPICS: Campbell misses out on final
There was disappointment for Alan Campbell in his single sculls semi final today (Friday) as he missed out a place in the final.
He finished fourth in his semi after the Belarus rower stormed through in last 250 metres.
Fellow Coleraine rower Richard Chambers and Great Britain team-mate Will Fletcher also missed out on a place in the final of the lightweight men’s double sculls at the Olympic Games in Rio.
The GB pair came home fourth in their semi-final on Thursday in a time of 6:38.76 minutes, with just the top three qualifying for Friday’s final.
Peter Chambers’ hopes of a second Olympic medal were dashed on Tuesday when the British lightweight fours failed to qualify for the final.
