More gold for the watery isles
'Britain’s rowers claim two more gold medals as men's four and women's lightweight double sculls win finals.' Even winning takes it out of you.
Sophie Hosking and Katherine Copeland, the youngest crew in the final, rowed a tactically perfect race to the roar of the crowd round Dorney water.
Earlier, 'Britain’s heavyweight quartet vanquished a sustained charge from Australia to extend the country’s supremacy in the coxless fours to 16 years.'
Winning is hard, happy work.
O scepter'd isle!
