Campbell cruises into quarter-final

Coleraine rower Alan Campbell eases his way into the Olympic rowing regatta with a comfortable victory in the men's single sculls heats.

Campbell powered clear over the opening 500 metres and his finishing time of 6:47.62 left him more than three seconds ahead of second-placed Chinese rower Zhang Lang.

Campbell will be back in action at Eton Dorney in Tuesday's quarter-finals.
