Rowers finish at bottom of heat one
Indian rowers Kasam Khan and Inderpal Singh ended up at the bottom of the five-boat heat one in the men's coxless pairs event Monday at the Olympic Games but have a chance to make amends Monday and make the finals through repechage.
The Indians, bronze medallists at the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games, crossed the finish line in 7 minutes 9.94 seconds as compared to the heat's winners France (6:44.80), second-placers Italy (6:48.26) and Croatia (6:52.57).
Argentina, who came fourth in 6:55.57, also failed to make the grade.
Yugoslavia, South Africa and the USA took the 1-2-3 positions in the second heat while Britain, hosts Australia and Canada ended up in the top three positions in the third heat.
In the repechage, India will have to fight it out with Argentina, Egypt, Germany, Slovakia and Poland.
