Olympic sculls duo complete the set
Saturday 06 November 2010
Great Britain clinched two more gold medals at the World Rowing Championships in New Zealand yesterday in extremely tough conditions that were criticised as "unfair" by a number of the team.
Zac Purchase and Mark Hunter added the world title to their Olympic gold from Beijing in the lightweight double sculls while the new-look women's quadruple scull also topped the podium. But the men's four, who were defending the title they won in Poznan last year, and the women's lightweight double sculls both failed to pick up a medal despite going into their finals among the favourites for gold.
A jubilant Hunter said: "It's something I've been searching for and training for, for a long time. To be Olympic champion and not a world champion, there was a little hole there that's been filled now."
