Coleraine rower Peter Chambers has clinched gold at the World Under-23 Championships in Amsterdam.

Chambers and his British partner Kieren Emery took the lightweight pair's title in a new world best time of 6:26.90.

Two weeks ago, Chambers and his brother Richard were part of the victorious Great Britain lightweight men's four at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne.

The Coleraine brothers were competing together at world level for GB for the first time on that occasion.
