Germany win men's Eight gold - London 2012 - Rowing

World champions Germany have won gold in the men's Eight final at Eton Dorney.

Canada overtook the Great Britain crew in the final quarter of the race to claim silver.

That meant the Host Nation finished third and took a Rowing bronze medal to add to the gold won in the first final of today, the women's Pair.

Britain trailed by only half a canvas at the 1000m mark and gave triple world champions Germany a tough test.

But Germany began to pull clear in the final quarter of the race and eventually the British crew were pipped for silver by 2008 Olympic champions Canada.
