Rowing: Britain take first World Cup crown.

Great Britain's rowers secured their first overall World Cup trophy in ten years over habitual winner Germany after the final round of events yesterday on Lucerne's Rotsee Lake.

The quartet of Richard Chambers, James Lindsay-Fynn, James Clarke and Paul Mattick became the first World Cup winners in the men's lightweight four.

And there was also a gold medal in the women's quadruple scull, thanks to the efforts of Katherine Grainger, Debbie Flood, Fran Houghton and Annie Vernon, who picked up the overall trophy in the event as a result of gold in Lucerne and in Linz, and silver in Amsterdam.

Single sculler Alan Campbell, double scullers Stephen Rowbotham and Matt Wells and the men's four took silver medals while the lightweight men's double of Zac Purchase and Mark Hunter took bronze.
