Team GB's men and women's eight teams and the men's quadruple sculls have secured places in their respective rowing finals at Rio 2016.

After strong winds led to races being cancelled on Sunday, the men's eight dominated their heat to secure their place in Wednesday's (10 August) final with a finishing time of 5:34.23. The women's team meanwhile fought back from third place to power past New Zealand and Canada.

The men's quadruple sculls, made up of the team of Jack Beaumont, Sam Townsend, Angus Groom and Peter Lambert, secured second place in their heat behind Germany, good enough to secure their place in Wednesday's final.

Lightweight double sculls pair William Fletcher and Richard Chambers also qualified for the second round after their second place finish behind South Africa, while Helen Glover and Heather Stanning remain on course to defend their pairs title after snatching victory ahead of Denmark, despite trailing for most of the race to book their semi-final spot.

There was disappointment however for London 2012 champions Katherine Copeland and Charlotte Taylor, however, after they failed to qualify in their women's lightweight double sculls heat.

Tuesday's repechage event offers them the opportunity to extent their stays in Rio, however.
