Helen Glover and Heather Stanning stormed to gold at Rio 2016, retaining their Olympic womens pair title in style, before Alex Gregory, Mohamed Sbihi, George Nash and Constantine Louloudis followed suit in the mens four. Fernando Rodney Jersey .Four years on from lighting up London 2012, their unbeaten run that stretches back to 2011 was never in doubt on a dank morning in Brazil.Glover and Stanning led from the outset, winning in seven minutes 18.29 seconds to become the first female British rowers to retain their Olympic crown.Stanning told BBC One: Its not done until its done. Youve got to cross the line first. We knew it was important to get a good start and thats what we did.To be fair I think my first stroke was pretty shoddy. I was a bit slow reacting compared to what I can do.Glover added: It was good, it was great, Heather was amazing.Weve just got to say a massive, massive thank you to Robin (Williams) our coach. He just put that together, that is for him - four years of hard work. Hes been really ill, hes been away from home for most of the year and he deserves to be up here with us speaking to you guys.Stanning said: Without him wed be nowhere.The duo embraced after crossing the line at the end of a regatta they were 1/9 favourites to win with some bookmakers.Glover and Stanning were given a scare in the heats by the Danish crew, eventually sneaking victory by 0.16 secs, but cruised through Thursdays semifinal.There was a similarly dominant display from the indomitable duo in the final as they extended their unbeaten run together to a 39th race.Cheered on by friends and family at the Lagoa, the world and European champions were 1.77secs up after 500 metres.They were 3.58s ahead at the halfway mark and would eventually win by 1.24, seeing off a late surge from New Zealand.Glover and Stanning were followed on the Rio water by Gregory, Sbihi, Nash and Louloudis, who continued Britains dominance of the mens four, bringing home gold from a fifth successive Olympics.The burden of history may weigh heavy but the quartet proved they have broad enough shoulders for that expectation, holding off Australia to triumph by 1.83 secs.Victory saw Gregory defend his mens four gold from London 2012, while Sbihi, Nash and Louloudis improved on the Olympic bronzes they won four years ago.It continued Jurgen Groblers run of coaching a gold medal-winning crew at every Olympics since 1972 and, most pertinently, Britains dominance of the mens four that started at Sydney 2000, when Sir Steve Redgrave won his fifth and final gold medal.There have been some nerve-wracking moments along that glorious run but the current four looked comfortable from the outset on Friday.Just like Thursdays semifinal, they attacked from the front and had the power to see off Australias attention, beating them to victory in five minutes 58.61 seconds. Zack Greinke Jersey . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Jake Lamb Jersey . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. http:///...j-d-martinez-jersey/ . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos.
