Men's lightweight four prepare for final at Eton Dorney

Four of the region's top rowers must replicate their semi-final performance to win a medal in the Men's Lightweight Four. Chris Bartley and brothers Richard and Peter Chambers from Henley will team up with Rob Williams from Maidenhead as they strive for a place on the podium at Eton Dorney.

The first final of the day has already taken place so the Berkshire team know they must beat a time of 6:08.37 already set by France if they want to achieve Gold. The Brits have already managed to beat the 6 minute mark in the semi-finals and hope they can repeat that performance today.
