The entire rowing programme scheduled yesterday at the Rio Olympics was cancelled due to high winds on the course.

Under the imposing gaze of Rio's most iconic image, the magnificent Christ the Redeemer statue, the rowing venue, Lagoa Stadium, is one of the most picturesque in the city.

But it is prone to the vagaries of the weather. On Saturday a Serbian crew capsized during their race.

The announcement meant disappointment for the O'Donovan brothers, Paul and Gary, and Claire Lambe and Sinead Lynch, who were due to compete in the heats of the men's lightweight double sculls and women's lightweight double sculls respectively.

After an initial cancellation lasting two hours, it was announced that the entire programme for the day was being abandoned. The heats of both events will been rescheduled for this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Irish single sculler Sanita Puspure is preparing for her quarter-final which was originally scheduled for today.

The 36-year-old, who won a bronze medal at the European championships in Germany last May, finished second in her heat on Saturday to advance.
