Wow I called the men’s single final right – Drysdale, Synek, Campbell. Alan Campbell has had a great Olympics and I was so happy to see him get bronze. He was so emotional that I teared up with him. I am also happy that Mahe Drysdale got closure with an Olympic gold. I felt a little bad that nobody really cheered for Synek, because they were still cheering for Campbell and the champions from the previous medal ceremony, Watkins and Grainger from Team GB in the women’s double.
I was also so happy to see the F final in the men’s single. The guy from Tunisia looked pretty good, and the crowd cheered as loudly for the last-place sculler from Niger as they did for the champions. That shows a lot of class.
Congrats to all!
