Olympic Preview - Rowing

Rowing can provide us with many exciting moments at the Olympics, as witness Canada's surprise, come-from-behind silver medal in the 2012 Coxed Eight final.  (In fact, they fell less than an oar's length short of the gold.)   

The medal was particularly sweet for Canada's Jeremiah Brown, who had only taken up rowing less than four years earlier.  Who could not be totally wowed by that?
