The Olympics is over now but Paul O'Donovan hasn't stopped pulling like a dog.

The younger half of Ireland's silver medal-winning sibling duo continued his march towards world championship glory in Rotterdam this afternoon, winning his single sculls quarter-final with the fastest time out of any of the four races.

O'Donovan, who also won his heat earlier in the week, beat Colin Ethridge of America and Luka Radonic of Croatia, who finished in second and third respectively.

Paul will race in the semi-final tomorrow at 15.25.
