Three crews from the United States secured their places at the London Games by winning races at the Olympic qualification regatta on Tuesday.

The women's double sculls, the lightweight men's four and men's eight all won on the Rotsee course in Lucerne, Switzerland, to guarantee spots at the Olympics.

Sarah Trowbridge and Margot Shumway dominated the finals of the double sculls to finish more than a second ahead of the Netherlands in 7 minutes 3.96 seconds.

The lightweight four of Robin Prendes, Nick LaCava, Will Newell and Anthony Fahden came through the field in a time of 6.01.85 before the eight finished ahead of a New Zealand crew in 5.36.11.
