MAIDENHEAD'S Rob Williams will contest an Olympic final on the lake where he first learnt to row.
Williams, who learnt to row on Dorney Lake, will race in Thursday's final after winning the lightweight men's four semi-final in impressive fashion.
The four won their race in 5:59.68 seconds thanks to a great sprint finish in the last 500m.
Reading's Sam Townsend and Bill Lucas are through to the final of the men's double sculls after coming third in their semi-final.
It was a nail-biting finish to the race as the GB duo were pushed all the way to the line in a time of 6 minutes 22.47 behind Lithania and Slovenia.
Townsend and Lucas, racing in their first Olympics, took the third qualifying spot and will contest the final on Thursday at 11.50am.
