Ireland's Sanita Puspure has qualified for the Olympics after today's Regetta event in Switzerland.

The 34-year-old needed to finish in the Top 4 to secure her place in Rio and achieved just that in the final of the women's single sculls.

Puspure finished second to seal her place at her second Olympics in a row, having participated at London 2012 where she made it to the quarter-finals in the event.
