(BEIJING, August 17) -- Reigning world champion Poland clinched gold in the Men's Quadruple Sculls with a time of 5:41.33, more than two seconds faster than second-place finisher Italy, who reached the finish line in 5:43.57. France took bronze with a time of 5:44.34.
Poland won three consecutive world championships from 2005 through 2007 in the same event and they came in first in 2008 Munich World Cup. The crew held their lead from start to finish with Italy in second-place throughout the race.
"We were really strong from the beginning to the end," said Poland's Marek Kolbowicz after the race. "Nobody could beat us."

Denmark led from start to finish in the race, while Poland reached the 500 meter mark at the back of a close field of competitors. Great Britain was in the medal mix at the 1500m mark -- in third place just 0.25 seconds ahead of Canada -- but was passed by Canada and France in the final stretch.
"I love to row -- work with everything that makes the boat go fast. The teamwork, the physique," Ebbesen said after the win, "I'm just happy to be at the Olympics."
