‘I got a million whatsapp messages telling me I was needed straight away. So I ran over straight away. Today I did my best. I think this shows the depth of the squad and that the quad is making a name for itself in GB rowing,’ said Graeme Thomas (from Great Britain’s men’s double), who literarlly had to jump in the GB Men’s Quadruple Sculls for the final after stroke Peter Lambert took ill. The British crew rowed an incredible race and took the silver behind the Lithuanians, with the Estonians third.
