I watched some rowing finals today. Except instead of going backwards, sitting down and using oars, they where on one knee and paddled. It was pretty fun to watch.
I don't know how those guys handle kneeling on one knee all of the time. There is a cup type pad in the boat but it looks like it would be darned uncomfortable if done for any length of time.
I hope you caught some of the rowing finals. If nothing else, the men's and women's singles were great races.
The best stuff I've seen today has been the 50k walk.
Congrats on your bronze medal!
