What do you get when you cross wood flooring, two office chairs and brooms? The fourth Olympic event of the day - team rowing.

The fifth event, team speed walking, was surprisingly the most dangerous event of the day.

It was a hard fought battle, but in the end there could be only one overall medal count winner - Blue.
