One senior world championships and one medal for Canberra rower Caleb Antill after he helped the men's quadruple scull claim silver in Bulgaria on Saturday night.

Antill teamed up with Campbell Watts, Alexander Purnell and David Watts to storm into second behind winners Italy after a slow start. The Ukraine were third.

Their silver medal added to Australia's men's four winning their second consecutive world title and the women's four's second-placed finish in Plovdiv.

It was Antill's senior worlds debut, having competed at the under-23 level the past two years.

"It feels amazing to win my first senior world championships medal, it’s unbelievable," he said.
