Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover has admitted rowing may have missed out on the chance to capitalise on success at London 2012.

Great Britain head to the World Championships in South Korea later this month without a chief sponsor despite finishing top of the medal table last year. Glover, who won gold in the women's coxless pairs, thinks rowing is not building on that Olympic success.

"This is a sport that doesn't necessarily have the voice that others have and that shows in the fact that I still don't have as sponsor," Glover said.
