You're reading: Britain tops rowing medals table with 4 golds

 

WINDSOR, England — Britain doubled their gold-medal haul on the final day of the Olympic regatta with victories by the men's four and the lightweight women's double sculls Saturday, leaving the host nation top of the rowing medals table.

The British finished with nine medals — four golds, two
silvers and three bronzes — to surpass the country’s record total of
eight from the 1908 Olympics, which was also held in London.

Britain’s
flagship four overcame big rival Australia to win the most eagerly
anticipated race of the day. The celebrations among the packed home
crowd were still in full flow by the time Kat Copeland and Sophie
Hosking eased to victory in the lightweight double.

New Zealand finished second in the rowing medals table with three golds.
