Watch the GB team almost collapsed after the steering disaster, as the four gold medalists without a coxswain for the first time in 21 years
TEAM GB rowers almost clashed with Italy because they missed the men’s quadruple gold medal for the first time in 21 years.
Matt Rossit, Scolto Carnegie, Rory Gibbs and Oliver Cook started rushing towards the Italian in the final stages, luckily avoiding the pool.
Despite the horrifying incident, the British finally finished fourth, and the Italian continued to drive to win the bronze medal.
Australia led with 5:42.76 and won the gold medal at home.
Romania won the silver medal because it was suggested that the Italians would appeal National standard.
But Italy did not make any demands-he just breathed a sigh of relief because he crossed the line in one breath.
GB is still in competition as it enters the final 500m.
When the Italians also started to lower their heads to breathe, the Australians looked at the distance within reach of the British.
But as Romania supplies electricity on the other side of the lake, the focus is on the battle between Britain and Italy.

Incredibly, as the British ship started to slow down, GB began to turn to the Italian lane.
When the British adjusted and returned to the course at the last minute, it seemed certain that a dangerous collision would occur.
But in doing so, when Italy crossed the finish line unscathed, GB slowed down and stifled any chance for them to win a medal.
Since the 2000 Sydney Olympics, GB has not missed the gold medal in the foursome without a coxswain.
