Duo into world sculls final

NOOSA'S Hannah Every-Hall and her crew-mate Alice McNamara competed in the final of the women's lightweight double sculls at the World Rowing Championship regatta at Lake Bled, Slovenia.

The Australian duo went into the race as genuine medal contenders after emphatically winning their semi-final, booking a middle lane for the decider.

Every-Hall, 33, is a mother of two in the midst of a stirring comeback in the sport.

She won a gold medal in the 2002 world championships, competing in the women's lightweight quad squall.

To kick-start her return to the rowing ranks she finished fifth in last year's world championships in the lightweight double scull.

She was eager to try and improve on that performance last night. Also in the final were Great Britain, New Zealand, Greece, Canada and USA.
