Rowing: Women's eight clinch world bronze in Bled

Britain's women's eight picked up a bronze medal at the World Championships in Bled, Slovenia yesterday.

Current Paralympic champion, Tom Aggar, got gold in the AS single scull which he also won in Slovenia last year. However, the lightweight men's four of Chris Bartley, Paul Mattick, Rob Williams and Richard Chambers failed to defend their title as they finished third, with the gold going to Australia and Italy taking the silver.
