The Debrief: Olympics day one

Day one of the racing from Tokyo 2020 saw the men’s and women’s single sculls – including Vicky Thornley pictured above – and the double sculls and quad sculls take to the water. Fergus Mainland goes through all the overnight action below with Olympian Pete Lambert, former GB rower Melissa Wilson and Martin Gough, sports journalist and rowing coach.

The Debrief is produced in association with Junior Rowing News.
