Ireland's Sanita Puspure has retained her gold medal at the World Championships in Austria.
Puspure trailed New Zealander Emma Twigg for most of the race before overhauling her to win by more than three seconds.
"Today I just tried to do my own rhythm. With 500 meters to go, I just went for it just like in training," she told World Rowing.
"Mentally that was the hardest race of the regatta. It’s been a tough year but I’m really pleased."
