Olympic success gives rowing a boost

The success of Northern Ireland's Olympic rowing medal winners Alan Campbell, Peter Chambers and Richard Chambers has inspired a new generation to take up the sport.

BBC NI's Phil Coulter joined the new recruits at Queen's University Rowing Club at 08:00 GMT on Saturday morning.

He discovers that the "love of the sport" helps them to get up so early in the morning to pursue their interest.

Rebecca McGookin is the ladies' captain, Andrew Little is the men's captain, while mature student Pamela McGuigan took up the sport four weeks ago.
