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.
God save your Queen.
This is an incredible effort. We aren't going to do it but a brilliant effort.
Hold onto silver!
Bronze... great effort for the first 1500 metres though.
In keeping with sporting tradition, Germany edges England in a close run event.

must feel wierd to be that jockey in the back telling the boys to row harder. they win and theyre all ****ed and he wants to high five em.
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.
Great race, well done Germany. Medal is good, better than Australia though Burgey.
