Swaran second in minor placings race
Swaran finished second in semi-final C, with a timing of 7:36.25 at the Eton Dorney Rowing Centre. A fourth-place finish in the quarter-finals on Tuesday ousted him from competition. He will now compete in the final C tomorrow, which will be for the 13th to 18th placings.
However, Sandeep Kumar and Manjeet Singh fought hard to avoid the wooden spoon in lightweight double sculls.
