GB men's eight pipped by Germany

Germany narrowly beat Great Britain to the line in heat two of the Men's Eight Olympic rowing event at Eton Dorney.

The British squad picked up their strokes in the last 500m but could not quite match the reigning world champion's pace, meaning GB will have to go through the repechage.
