O'Donovan brothers target Tokyo gold

Gary and Paul O'Donovan says their next target is Tokyo gold after winning silver in the men's lightweight double sculls.

The Cork pair, who made history on Friday by becoming the first Irish rowers to win an Olympic medal, say they hope to go one better in four years' time.

After a slow start, the brothers produced another strong finish to move up from fifth at the halfway mark to win silver in six minutes 31.23 seconds, with the French pair of Pierre Houn and Jeremie Azou taking gold.

The brothers however, are not resting on their laurels and they are already targeting gold in Tokyo 2020.

"We're just happy to be able to take over from them [previous Irish rowers who went close to securing a medal in the Olympics] and push it another step further onto the Olympic podium," Paul said. "I suppose what's left next is to get on the tip shelf of the podium now.

"We're going to give it a go in Tokyo and if not maybe we'll have someone else to support and take it on in the future."
