Women's Double Sculls Results: Margot Shumway, Sarah Trowbridge Fail To Medal In Rowing Final

Only one American team made it to the finals for the Women's Double Sculls, but there was not any hardware in the end for them. The rowing event's gold medal went to the host nation as Anna Watkins and Katherine Grainger of team Great Britain finished with a time of 6:55.82. Kim Crow and Brooke Pratley of Australia took home the silver with a time of 6:55.82 while the bronze ended up going to Magdalena Fularczyk and Julia Michalska of Poland and their 7:07.92 time.

Despite the best efforts of Ohio native Margot Shumway and her rowing partner Sarah Trowbridge, they placed sixth overall in the Final A group with a very disappointing finishing time of 7:07.92. Margot and Sarah's failure to medal was part of a very disappointing day for the United States in rowing events, with no medals in any events for Americans.
