Heat 2 (August 15)[edit]

The second heat of the Men's Eight was a particularly intense match as the United States pulled ahead of Canada (undefeated since 2001) in the last 500 m. The Canadian Eight was a favourite for the gold, whereas the American Eight had never before been tried internationally. Both boats beat the World's best time for the Men's Eight, and the United States advances directly to the finals while Canada goes to the Repechage.

In the final 1000 meters, the Netherlands made a run at the United States, finishing 1.3 seconds short. Australia maintained its position three seconds behind the United States while Germany and Canada fell off the pace and France trailed in sixth place.
