Alan Campbell qualifies for single sculls final

Coleraine's Alan Campbell, the world bronze medallist, qualified for the single sculls final in second place behind Ondrej Synek from the Czech Republic.

Campbell started well and he led the field for the first 1250 metres but Synek produced a strong finish to claim the race win by a length.

Mahe Drysdale, the five-time world champion, won the first semi-final comfortably and will be favourite to win his first Olympic gold medal.

But it promises to be a thrilling race for the podium with Campbell, Synek and Sweden's Lassi Karonen all in medal contention.
