Britain's Olympic champions Helen Glover and Heather Stanning have won the women's pair at the second World Cup meet in France.

This was a first international meet for Yeovil-born Stanning, 29, since she won gold at the London Games alongside 28-year-old Glover, from Cornwall.

Their time of seven minutes and 2.91 seconds was enough to beat two American boats.

Stanning returned to rowing last November after a six-month spell in the army and won the British trials in April.

The third and final World Cup event takes place from July 13-15 in Lucerne with the World Championship following from August 24-31 in the Netherlands.
