Molesey Boat Club stars James Foad, Greg Searle and Moe Sbihi helped Team GB’s men’s eight qualify for the Olympic final with a victory over Canada and Holland in today's repechage.
The new-look Great Britain crew made a fast start and quickly opened a three-quarter-length lead over reigning Olympic champions Canada to take control of the race.
The Canadians, Holland and Australia all put the pressure on in the final stages and succeeded in closing the gap.
But Britain remained calm, rowing within themselves at 36 strokes per minute to seal the win and a place in Wednesday’s final.
The British crew only came together six weeks ago when stroke man Constantine Louloudis proved he had recovered from a back injury which kept him out of all three World Cup regattas.
