ROW YOUR BOAT

Britain may be getting worried — no gold at its home Olympic Games after four days of action.

Fear not, Britons: The rowing finals have arrived.

Helen Glover and Heather Stanning are the heavy favorites to win the women's pair in the first of 14 rowing finals across the next four days at Dorney Lake.

They are unbeaten in 2012, winning all three World Cup rowing regattas, and broke the Olympic-best time in the heats.

If they win, they'd become the first females to win an Olympic rowing gold for Britain. The country's reporters and TV crews are flocking to Windsor to see them do it.

No pressure, then.
