6:48 am on 15 October 2008

Retired rowing champions Georgina and Caroline Evers-Swindell are among the finalists for the 2008 World Rowing Awards.

They successfully defended their Olympic double sculls title in Beijing in August.

Other finalists in the women's category are Bulgarian single sculler Rumyana Neykova and the American eight, who both won in Beijing.

The Evers-Swindells are also likely to be nominated for the Halberg Sports Awards in New Zealand later this year.
