All eyes will be on the Chambers brothers from Coleraine later as they go for gold in the London Olympics.

Richard and Peter Chambers are firm favourites for rowing gold as they take to the water in the lightweight men's fours.

The Northern Ireland pair and their team mates won their semi-final in 5:59.68.

"It's a relief to have got this far and we are in a good place," said Peter, the younger of the siblings.

A sell-out crowd of 35,000 people is expected to cheer on the team on Thursday.
