Glover and Stanning book 2012 spot with world silver
- From the section Rowing
British rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning lead almost from start to finish in the women's pair at the World Rowing Championships in Slovenia.
However, they are overhauled at the end by New Zealand's reigning world champions Juliette Haigh and Rebecca Scown, who snatch gold by just 0.08 seconds.
Glover and Stanning's appearance in the final guarantees them a place at next year's London Olympics.
