1st men's 8 rowing GOLD in 40 years!
That was great! I loved the grainy old tape from Tokyo. They ran the race at night, and the course was lit by automobile headlights and flares.
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
(gotta show all 8 of them)

Congratulations to them. Never have sculled an oar I am intrigued by the rowing races. Looks tough.
Once we were having a Star race and my crew and I were at the dock watching an 8 woman scull load up to go out. I guess that one of the ladies thought that we were just a couple of dirty old men ogling the nice young women. She shouted 'hey, what are you looking at?' over at us, to which I just grinned and said 'I am watching to see how long it takes y'all to fill up that boat without turning over', to which there was a general laugh. Neat sport.
