New Zealand's Emma Twigg has eased into the final of the Olympic women's single sculls with a third placing in her semifinal at Eton Dorney tonight.

The 25 year-old from Hastings was no match for Denmark's Fie Udby Erichsen but she appeared to have something in hand at the finish.

Twigg, Erichsen and Chinese veteran Xiuyun Zhang split from the other three rowers at the 1000m and with the top three to qualify for Saturday's final the leading trio were content to row within themselves.

However,the downside for finishing third is Twigg will start from an outside lane in the final.
