Rowing: Olympic dream alive as crews make semi-final

Ireland's rowers are hoping to earn tickets for three more boats at the Beijing Olympics with their performance at the final qualifying regatta which opened yesterday in Poznan, Poland.

In their opening heats both the men's pair and the light-weight men's double finished second in their heats to move directly to tomorrow's semi-finals. But with only two or three places in each event still up for grabs, the Irish crews face a desperate struggle if they are to qualify.
