Andrew Triggs Hodge and Pete Reed immediately set their sights on the world championships and overhauling arch rivals New Zealand after winning the Team GB rowing trials.

Hodge and Reed produced a commanding finish in still conditions at Eton-Dorney, the 2012 Olympic venue, to beat Tom James and Alex Gregory in a closely fought men's pair final.

British coach Jurgen Grobbler is yet to confirm that Hodge and Reed will be selected in the pair for the forthcoming World Cup campaign and the world championships.
