Harry Leask, Angus Groom, Tom Barras and Jack Beaumont celebrate winning their silver medal for Great Britain

Britain’s streak of five consecutive Olympic golds in the men’s four came to an end before a surprise silver in the quadruple sculls lifted the spirits of British Rowing.

After all four men completely missed a medal, Harry Leask, Angus Groom, Tom Barras and Jack Beaumont made sure Britain did not end Wednesday morning empty-handed.

From lane one, they rowed a magnificent race and finished second behind the Netherlands.

They were leading halfway, but held off the Australians and Poles for silver.

His success came minutes after the end of an era in the four men, when a career that began in Sydney 2000 by Steve Redgrave, Matthew Pinsent, Tim Foster and James Cracknell was halted.

Team GB were competing for a sixth consecutive Olympic title at the event, but after trying to chase down Australia, which set a fierce pace early on, the team of Oliver Cook, Matthew Rossiter, Rory Gibbs and Sholto Carnegie faded in the end. and missed a medal entirely.

The British ship briefly left its lane in the later stages, nearly colliding with Italy, which finished third behind Romania.

It was the third consecutive fourth qualifier for the British team at Sea Forest Waterway.

Graeme Thomas and John Collins finished fourth overall in men's double sculls.

The British duo pushed hard to overtake China for bronze medal position in the final stages in windy conditions, but were unable to close the gap.

Gold went to French double Hugo Boucheron and Matthieu Androdias just 0.2 seconds behind the Netherlands.

There was similar agony for Rowan McKellar’s four wives, Harriet Taylor, Karen Bennett, and Rebecca Shorten.

But her disappointment was a joy to the Irish quartet of Aifric Keogh, Eimear Lambe, Fiona Murtagh and Emily Hegarty, who won their country’s first ever Games medal by leading British women to bronze.

Australia claimed gold in another close final ahead of the Netherlands.
