Coleraine rower Alan Campbell is determined to hit the heights and reach another Olympic final.

The 33-year-old (above and right) is relishing his time in Rio, performing well and competing at one of the most spectacular venues in Games history with Sugarloaf Mountain in the background. Team GB's Campbell, who won bronze at London 2012, was delighted to reach the semi-finals yesterday, but there was pain for fellow Ulster man Peter Chambers when his lightweight four missed out on the final.
