Taking first

The GB Men’s coxless four (yes, more rowing talk) has taken gold in the Olympics, by the startling margin of 0.08 seconds. Here’s an inspiring quote from Matthew Pinsent, who has now won gold in the last four Olympics, on how the difficulties they’ve had in the run-up to the games affected his aims:

“I have rowed so badly as not to have deserved a medal, I have rowed myself and the crew into a tired and dejected position where winning was impossible, but gone out to try to win a silver?

“No. Never.”
