Rowing: Dane pips Stiller to Olympics
Wednesday 18 June 2008
Tina Stiller's hopes of qualifying for the Beijing Olympics in the single sculls were dashed yesterday by Ulla Hvid of Denmark who edged out the 20-year-old Nottingham student in the qualifying regatta in Poznan. Six hundredths of a second separated them after a charge for the finishing line behind Nuria Dominguez Asensio, of Spain.
The men's quadruple scullers have a chance of going to Beijing after finishing second in their repêchage, while Olivia Whitlam and Louisa Reeve have an evenly matched four-boat final today for one of two Olympic places. In a race for lanes on Monday they finished second.
