Finals[edit]

Final A (August 21)[edit]

The defining moment of the regatta was Briton Matthew Pinsent winning his fourth consecutive Olympic gold medal, this time without legendary partner Steve Redgrave. The British men's coxless four, narrowly saw off the challenge of the World Champion Canadian. The final was stroke-for stroke, with the lead changing hands and Great Britain won with a time of 6:06.98, 8 hundredths of a second faster than the Canadians. Pinsent later wept at the medal ceremony.
