Katherine Grainger and her double sculls partner Anna Watkins set a new Olympic record in their heat, making them favourites for gold today. Their time was four seconds faster than the other heat winners Australia.
We were a bit surprised we got the Olympic record. Anna deliberately held us steady for the second half of the race.
Part of me would have loved to lift the roof off the boat and see how fast we can go but we know we've got that in the final.
There's really quite a big amount to come.
