Bright end can’t mask dismal Games for rowers

Britain ended the rowing regatta with bronze in the men’s eight but it was not enough to prevent them from slumping to their worst Olympic performance since 1972.

Earlier, Vicky Thornley’s single scull had become the sixth British boat to finish an agonising fourth at these Games.

More medals imminent

As the boxing action hots up, Pat McCormack, one of Britain’s leading medal hopes across all sports coming to Tokyo, reached the semi-finals of the men’s welterweight competition.

Both he and teammate Ben Whittaker, who did likewise in the light-heavyweight division, are guaranteed at least a bronze medal.
