Wadebridge rower Annie Vernon has the finals of the women's eights well in her sights.
Her crew missed out on booking a place in the first heats but made it through today.
Annie will be looking to bounce back after suffering heartbreak at the Beijing games when she narrowly missed out on taking a gold medal.
Alastair Barr from Castle Dore rowing club was her first coach. He said: "It was a huge disappointment. They were all in tears on the podium. The whole mentality of the thing is there is nothing else but a gold. Getting silver isn't good enough.
"She's had a few back problems this year. Being an Olympian is enough. To be an Olympian twice is great."
Meanwhile Restronguet sailor Ben Ainslie is lying second in the sailing after six races.
The three-time Olympic champion is ten points behind the overall leader from Denmark.
After describing Monday as “terrible”, he finished fourth and third in his two races on day three of the Olympic Regatta at Weymouth and Portland.
