British four hail rowing 'masterpiece'
- From the section Olympics
Great Britain's men's coxless four have achieved their "masterpiece", in Andy Trigg Hodge's words, meaning GB win gold for the fourth successive Olympics by edging out Australia in a thrilling final at Eton Dorney.
Alex Gregory said "everything felt silent in our boat" as the four led from start to finish, with USA taking bronze.
It was British rowing's third gold medal of the regatta, matching their record haul in London 1908.
