WINDSOR, England -- The United States and Canada won their heats Sunday to qualify for the final of the women's eight, setting up one of the top showdowns of the Olympic rowing regatta.  Meghan Musnicki of Naples, NY is among the team USA members.

Unbeaten in six years, the U.S. was again dominant in its first competitive outing on Dorney Lake, surging to an early lead and holding its form and synchronicity to win by about two lengths in 6 minutes, 14.68 seconds.
