Rowing: Men’s Four Final
11:30am BBC1, BBC Olympics 2
Andrew Triggs Hodge, Pete Reed, Tom James and Alex Gregory will be first or second for Britain. Their coach, Jurgen Grobler, has never lost an Olympic Games: he coached Steve Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent in the coxless pairs in 1992 and 1996, and the GB men's four in 2000-8.
This time, GB are up against a really technically good Australian four. Drew Ginn is a three-time Olympic champion. They're laid-back Aussies. They don't care that we've dominated this for however many years. Ginn would think: Redgrave? I'm as good as him.
The British will be hoofing along: smacking it, whacking it, kicking it, a lot of anger. The camera will pan across to the Aussies, moving smoothly, making it look effortless but getting as much speed. Then they'll put their foot down. Our guys need to put them under pressure from the off. They're technically better than us. But Pinsent never rowed well, he was just a big horse. Redgrave wasn't technically great either!
GB also have medal hopes in the women's lightweight double sculls, with Katherine Copeland and Sophie Hosking (11.50am); and the men's lightweight double sculls, with Zac Purchase and Mark Hunter (12.10pm). Garry Herbert
