GB lightweight four to "fight harder" for Olympic gold - Chris Bartley

Chris Bartley insists the lightweight men's four will "fight harder" to clinch gold at London 2012 after losing their title to Italy at the World Rowing Championships in Bled, Slovenia.

Britain finished third behind Australia and Italy having suffered a poor start, and Bartley admits they were not "good enough" to win the race.

However, Paul Mattick is slightly more upbeat, saying he is "proud" of their podium finish.
