Sanita Puspure who recently qualified for London 2012 finished sixth in yesterday’s single sculls A final in Munich.
She recovered after a poor start, but not enough to figure in the business end of a race won by double Olympic champion Ekaterina Karsten.
“I got a bit left at the start and panicked a little bit,” said Puspure.
The semi-final was her target race and her best of the weekend.
Puspure said she felt “relaxed” as she slotted into the third qualification place and repulsed a challenge by Talia Gjoertz of Norway.
Puspure is set to compete at Henley Royal Regatta in little over a week before heading for London.
