Oncoming Olympian oarsmen...
GB won a hat-trick of Olympic-class golds at a World Championships for the first time in history - but they also broke GB's world championships gold medal record. This gold adds to the lightweight men's double scull and the women's quadruple scull golds plus further medals: two silvers and a bronze to their overall tally today. GB has more chances of medals tomorrow 7th November when the last seven medal finals will be decided on the closing day of the 2010 World Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro (NZ): both eights will be racing as well as both double sculls and the lightweight men's single scull final.
Update Sunday 7th: a further gold and two silvers put GB on top. "Great Britain finished the event, 21 months from the start of London 2012, with four gold medals, four silvers and a bronze from the 14 Olympic-class events, plus a gold and silver from Paralympic events." [BBC]
