GLASGOW - Comments from silver medallists Laila YOUSSIFOU (NED) and Elsbeth BEERES (NED) after the final of the women's pair at Strathclyde Country Park on Saturday.

Laila YOUSSIFOU (NED) - silver

On rowing through early leaders Great Britain:

"We knew they would [start fast] so we kind of used that. We wanted to stick to them and eventually row past them. We did that and we knew that the Romanians (Madalina BERES, Denisa TILVESCU) were there. They're a very strong crew."

Elsbeth BEERES (NED) - silver

On winning silver behind Romania:

"We tried to stick with them and put the tempo up, but it wasn't enough today."
