Campbell, Lofgren to Race in Finals on Friday

By Christina C. Mcclintock, Crimson Staff Writer

Harvard sophomore Andrew Campbell made his third world championship final in two years after he finished second in today's lightweight single semifinals at the World Rowing Championships in Bled, Slovenia. In the process, he became the first lightweight to make the finals of the event since Steve Tucker achieved the same feat in 2002.

In the first semifinal of the event, Campbell finished five seconds behind Henrik Stephansen of Denmark and posted the fifth fastest time of the day.

The result followed an impressive heat win in which Campbell pushed past Italian sculler Pietro Ruta in the final sprint of the race to take the heat by .3 seconds. Ruta, who took second in the day's other semifinal, will have another shot at the Crimson sophomore in the final.

Earlier this summer, Campbell took bronze at the U23 World Championships. The 19-year-old took silver at last year's junior world championships.

Also in the running for a World Championship tomorrow is Esther Lofgren '07-'09. Lofgren, racing in the bow seat of the women's eight, is aiming for her second straight world championship in the event.
