Glover and Swann take World Cup gold

Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover says she has "high expectations" for the new season after winning World Cup gold in Sydney.

Rookie rower Polly Swann partnered Glover as they powered to victory ahead of runners-up USA and hosts Australia in the women's pairs.

Swann - described by her partner as "brilliant to row with" - moves into the hot seat vacated by Heather Stanning, who rowed alongside Glover to gold at the 2012 London Games.
