Kate Hornsey and Old Scholar Sarah Tait (Outhwaite).

With Princess Anne among an expectant 25,000-strong crowd at Eton Dorney, Tait and Hornsey were forced to play second fiddle to the dominant British duo Helen Glover and Heather Stanning broke the home team's gold drought on the fifth day of the Games.Favourites Glover and Stanning, Team GB spares only three years ago, also ended another much longer drought for the hosts who had never won Olympic gold in women's rowing.

They set a new Olympic best time in the heats and took control of the final in the first 250m where they built up a length lead.World champions New Zealand trailed in second for all but the last 100m as Tait and Hornsey, fourth behind USA with 400m to go, stormed home.But they still finished two lengths behind Glover and Stanning to the joy of the home crowd.

The silver medal was still a particularly sweet success for Tait, 29, who chose to undergo wrist surgery just four weeks ago to ensure her fitness for her third Games appearance.The Australian women's team captain is the only survivor of the infamous women's eight crew which bombed in Athens when Sally Robbins lay down before the finish line.
