Historic Medal Haul for Australian Rowing Crews

Australian rowing is celebrating its single greatest day in Olympic history with four medals including two gold on the water in Tokyo on Wednesday.

On an historic day, Australia crowned two new Oarsome Foursome crews with its men’s and women’s fours both winning gold just minutes apart before the men’s and women’s quad sculls both took bronze.

The men’s fours combination of Alexander Purnell, Spencer Turrin, Jack Hargreaves and Alexander Hill broke Australia’s run of three consecutive Olympic silver medals in the event and ended Great Britain’s dominance with a thrilling win in the 2000m final.
