ETON DORNEY, England—Former Cavalier rower Inge Janssen competed in the 2012 Olympic Games, representing the Netherlands in the women’s double sculls.

On Monday (July 30), Janssen finished fourth in her heat and seventh overall with partner Elisabeth Hogerwerf in a time of 7:00.10. Anna Watkins and Katherine Grainger of Great Britain won the heat in a time of 6:44.33, an Olympic record.
