Bond and Murray win Gold

Rowing greatest team Hamish Bond and Eric Murray have won New Zealand’s first gold at the Rio Olympics.
The pair have won the the men’s pair final and means their run of victories now sits at 69 races.
Bond and Murray sat in about third position over the first 500m of the 2000m race.
But, by the 1000m mark they were a boat length ahead.
At the 1500m the rest of the field were simply battling it out for second with Bond and Murray two and a half lengths in front.
While the South African crew pegged back some of that lead over the final 500m to finish second, the New Zealanders won by over a boat length with Italy third.
