Women's Eight Rowing Results: Team USA Captures Another Gold Medal

Another event, another win for the American women's eight rowing team. Led by coxswain Mary Whipple, Team USA rowed its way to a gold medal on Thursday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The races runs for 2,000m. By the halfway point, the American team had a half a boat length lead over the Canadian team. Canada would finish second in the race, capturing the silver medal. The bronze medal went to the Netherlands. The gold medal gives the United State a total of 30, for now.

This was the second straight gold medal for the women's eight team. They have not lost a race in eight years, and were heavily favored for Thursday's.

The medal podium and final times for the event looked like this:

Gold: United States (6:10.59)

Silver: Canada (6:12.06)

Bronze: Netherlands (6:13.12)
