A scintillating performance from Eric Murray and Hamish Bond on day one of the London Olympics.
The almost unbackable gold medal favourites in the mens pair, Bond and Murray have set a new world's best time on the opening day of heats at Eton Dorney.
They've taken nearly six seconds off the previous best set by legends Sir Matthew Pinsent and James Cracknell 10 years ago.
Also impressive, Joseph Sullivan and Nathan Cohen, the men’s double scull putting the hammer down over the last 500 to qualify fastest for the semi finals.
Mahe Drysdale and Emma Twigg have moved smoothly into the quarters, but a challenge lays ahead for the women's pair – just the 4th fastest qualifier for Wednesday’s final.
