Canada has its fifth medal of the London Olympics after collecting a silver in the men’s eight, finishing behind three-time world champion Germany while Britain took the bronze.
The Canadian men’s rowing team entered the race as defending Olympic champs but only had three returning members of that 2008 crew; Toronto’s Andrew Byrnes, Victoria’s Malcolm Howard and coxswain Brian Price of Belleville.
Canada will try for another medal tomorrow in the women’s eight.
