    Agreed, very commendable effort given how quick Australia and Canada were in first and second.

    Fantastic to see Drysdale able to make the medal ceremony, looked a lot better than he had 10 minutess prior when he basically fainted.

    Yeah, still very pale but improving at least.

    Two more strong medal chances in the rowing, the twins up next and then Waddell & Cohen.

    Quite possibly closer than the swimming this morning.

    Bit disappointing from Waddell & Cohen, the "experts" were rating them our best chance at the start of the night.

    Waddell and Cohen in fourth, seemed to finish strongly (just a second off bronze), not that we saw them finish on the tv.

    Haha, did they get cut after there wasn't a chance of a medal?

    For crying out loud... TVNZ's coverage is pathetic, isn't it.

    No they showed the race, but the camera angle they used during the last 200m or so didn't show the outside lane.
