Greece won the silver medal in the Rowing World Championships on Sunday, as Vassilis Polymeros and Dimitris Mougios finished second in the lightweight double sculls final in Munich, Germany.

The Greeks clocked 6 mins 28.89 seconds, just 1.68 seconds behind gold medalists Mads Rasmussen and Rasmus Quist from Denmark.

This was the third world championship medal for Polymeros, who won the gold in 2005 and silver in 2001.

Polymeros and Mougios have also secured their place in next year’s Olympic Games in Beijing, as have Chrysi Biskitzi and Alexandra Tsiavou, who finished fifth in the women’s lightweight double sculls final on Sunday.
