    Great effort for the Aussies in the Female 8, considering that they only all teamed up as a ramshackle mob a month or two before the Games.

    Oops, the announcer got the NZ pair the wrong way around at the medal ceremony.

    Why are there no podiums? Bet its a health and safety issue or something.

    That anthem was lovely, just for Burgey.

    This is an incredible effort. We aren't going to do it but a brilliant effort.

    Hold onto silver!

    In keeping with sporting tradition, Germany edges England in a close run event.

    Have to say, rowing is a quality event to watch. And the better cameras now keep the places of the boats in perspective all race long.

    Absolutely, it's an awesome TV sport. Might be a bit **** to watch live, though - you wouldn't see much at all for most of the event.
