LUCY Glover's former coach at Warrington Rowing Club is looking beyond what the former Lymm High School pupil has already achieved by competing at the Tokyo Olympics.

Still only 22, there is potentially a lot more to come for the Edinburgh University psychology student from Grappenhall in future Olympic regattas – with Paris up next in 2024.

Glover, who has been operating from the stroke seat, and her Team GB quadruple sculls teammates missed out on qualification from Sunday's repechage for the medal-deciding A final and instead will race in the B final at Sea Forest Waterway in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Although they went into that repechage event as the second fastest boat outside the automatic qualifiers from the heats, a poor start cost them dearly.

Warrington Rowing Club's Richard Sinnott said: "She is absolutely devastated that they didn’t progress to the A final.

"The crew made a few technical errors during the start sequence which handicapped their performance and after that it was always a case of trying to chase the other crews down."

Step by step, Glover, a St Wilfrid's Rose Queen in 2011 who enjoys yoga and baking, her rowing career has progressed since first taking up the sport through Lymm High School's link up with Howley based Warrington Rowing Club.

Highlights have included medal-winning performances at the World Junior Championships, the World Under 23s Championships and the European Championships from 2016 to 2021.

"She is still so young and just to be selected for the Olympics squad is an amazing achievement," added Sinnott.

"We are looking forward to seeing her grow and develop as an Olympian as we look towards Paris."

Australia, nearly six seconds slower than Team GB in the heats, found more speed in their boat and progressed from Sunday's repechage as winners along with second-placed Italy.

Glover and her teammates Hannah Scott and sisters Mathilda and Charlotte Hodgkins-Byrne clocked 6:42.97, six seconds off the winners' pace and three seconds behind third-placed New Zealand.

They will go on to face United States, New Zealand and France to decide placings seventh to 10th in a B final which has been delayed a day due to the forecast of severe weather conditions, with the race now set for Wednesday at 1am.
