Australia's sports minister was forced to row 1,000 metres in Team GB colours after losing an Olympic wager with her British counterpart.
Kate Lundy had bet British sports minister Hugh Robertson that Australia would win more medals than Britain during the Olympics.
She had agreed to wear the red and blue kit and row on Dorney Lake if she lost, while Mr Robertson had promised to don an Australian field hockey uniform and dribble a ball around Australia House, the country's official government residence in London, if he lost the wager.
