South Africa has won its third gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics as the four members of the mens lightweight rowing team produced a magnificent effort to beat the favourites by a quarter of a second in what some describe as the ‘greatest Olympic rowing finish ever’.
James Thompson, Matthew Brittain, John Smith and Lawrence Ndlovu did the country proud with this outstanding performance. Skip to the 5 minute mark if you wanna get to the part where team SA come from 4th postition to take the win.
Love it when the commentator says “That is sensational! South Africa came from nowhere.”
Well done boychays..that was quality stuff.
