Olympics: Great Britain wins in an unfamiliar sport

Anna Watkins & Katherine Grainger
Rowing is not as familiar as other sports but it has been Great Britain's top sport over the years in the Olympics and it added yet another gold medal to the trophy case on Day 7 as the women's double sculls rowing tandem of Anna Watkins and Katherine Grainger dominated as expected. Australia's pairing of Kim Crow and Brooke Pratley grabbed the silver, the Polish team of Magdalena Fularczyk and Julia Michalska took bronze, a full 12 seconds behind the winners.

This is Great Britain's 26th all-time gold in rowing, which is behind only Germany and the United States. Few nations commit more to the sport of rowing than Great Britain, and it has most definitely shown in London.
