South Africa have shattered the dreams of a gold medal for Britain's Men's Lightweight Four.
Britain's best rowers have been competing at the Olympic venue at Eton Dorney this weekend.
Volunteers who will assist spectators at Olympic rowing and canoeing events are are preparing for their roles.
Four of the region's rowers have won silver in the Men's Lightweight Four after falling at the last hurdle to South Africa. Chris Bartley, Rob Williams and Richard and Peter Chambers from Henley just missed out on Gold at Eton Dorney. They failed to beat the six minute mark set in their semi-final.
Sam Townsend from Reading has lost the men's rowing double sculls final with partner Bill Lucas.
The pair led early but but were taken by New Zealand in first, Italy in second, and Slovenia in third.
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.
The region's rowers are hoping for more Olympic triumphs at Eton Dorney today, but can they match Helen Glover and Heather Stanning's success?
Sam Townsend from Reading, competing in the men's rowing double sculls with partner Bill Lucas, will be among those going for gold.
