Cornwall rower Helen Glover hopes she has done enough to persuade the Great Britain selectors to pick her alongside Heather Stanning in the 2011 team.

The duo were dominant in the women's pairs final at the weekend's GB trials, winning in seven minutes 15.27 seconds.

Glover told BBC Cornwall: "This is the first time that Heather and myself have won the trials so we're so happy.

"We want to stay together because we know we're good but the selectors can look at different combinations."

She added: "Hopefully what Heather and I did this weekend will show that we are really fast.

"We're going to say to the selectors 'please don't look at anyone else' because we've done what we needed to do."

Jess Eddie and Louisa Reeve finished second in the women's pairs at Dorney Lake, while Jo Cook and Alison Knowles crossed the line in third.

Glover and Stanning won a silver medal at the 2010 World Championships in New Zealand.
