Sport: It happens after an exciting build-up heat, where the other Norwegian double sculler with Oscar Helvig and Kristoffer Brun became the toughest challenger.

German Jonas Gelsen and Marc Weber won the heat in a time of 6.17.24. Juel and Solbakken followed just over a second behind, while Helvig and Brun were beaten by a further seven-tenths of a second.

The two best boats in the collection heat go to the A final, while Helvig/Brun will row the B final.

The A final will also be played by Inger Seim Kavlie, who impressed with victory in the semi-final in single sculls in a time of 7.34.01. She was over two seconds faster than her nearest competitor.

Lars Benske and Ask Tjøm will also row the A final in the lightweight double sculls. They progressed from the collection heat with 2nd place behind an Italian boat.

Earlier Saturday, Kjetil Borch won the D final in single sculls after being knocked out in the quarter-finals on Friday. A number of Norwegian boats will be in action in Varese throughout the day.
