The double sculls were quite the heart pumping race. You always knew what their plan would be, you knew that the final push was going to come, it was just a question on if it would be enough or if they would fall just a lil bit short as happened in the semis. Great to see them power through in the end.

Good on you Kiwis! You have every reason to be pleased and proud!

Great work NZ! Great games for you all!

If that rank of 18th actually happened, it would be a mindblowingly good performance. Population of just over 4million..... yeahhhh bro.

That certainly got the heart rate up big time. Tough to watch, they just flew home!!! Amazing result.

Bring on Mahe and the Mens Pairs tomorrow. Fingers Crossed.

Let's not mention Sydney - embarrasing, very low point in NZ Olympic history :ph34r:

Stand by for the Yachting - Skiffs 49ers, there's a medal in there! :huh::)

Was disappointed with the mens team sprint. They did not look that good at all. They have qualified, but won't make it much further than that.

Gotta feeling - looking at the white hot times being placed here - NZ will be left well behind in this Olympic meet.

Time will tell. Although we have Jessie Sergent back for the Team Pursuit.

Fingers crossed.

GB Womans Pursuit Team 'relegated'...sad...they were in the medals. Real anger here, lack of communication from officials.

It's not looking good for the womens Black Sticks with Argentina up 2 - 0, just too strong.

Black Sticks 1 - Argentina 2

Really dodgy umpireing there...But Argentina are #2 in the world anyway.

Tonight? That would be a dream...

Very realistic...Two in the rowing...one out at Waymouth...potential cycling as well.
