ETON DORNEY, ENGLAND - So, two silver medals it will be.
That will be the takeaway for Canada’s rowers at the London Games as their last shot for a medal, David Calder, a Brandon native who now lives in Victoria, and Scott Frandsen, of Kelowna, B.C., finished sixth in the pairs final Friday.
The silver medallists from Beijing four years ago, they were the only team still intact from that final.
New Zealand, as expected, ran away with gold.
The Kiwis pair of Eric Murray in the bow and Hamish Bond were 41-0 coming into the Olympics.
France won the silver and Great Britain the bronze.
