GLASGOW - Comments from silver medallist Lisa SCHEENAARD (NED) and bronze medallist Milda VALCIUKAITE (LTU) after the final of the women's double sculls at Strathclyde Country Park on Saturday.

Lisa SCHEENAARD (NED) - silver

On the race:

"I feel we had a really steady race. Because of crosswind, we had to slow down and it's a shame. I feel we were working tightly together but there was not a lot we could do. Of course, we are happy for silver but we were going for gold."

Milda VALCIUKAITE (LTU) - bronze

On the close finish:

"There was a tailwind so we expected the race to be so close. After crossing the finish line, we didn't know our position. We could have even be in fourth place. I am really proud of my team and of the men's quad [Lithuania took silver]."
