    Big screens all along course these days though so you don't miss much.

    A tight race is brilliant to watch in the Olympics.

    They don't seem to be paying much attention to where they're going. One day there'll be a massive bicycle pile-up at the top edge of the screen.

    There was a Czech guy with a flag running alongside the scullers earlier, kept up for for the first half of the race, great effort.

    The rowing has been brilliant today. Good to get a medal but well done SA for winning.
