A local crew of rowers, who made their way into the London 2012 Summer Olympics as an unknown, untested crew, took home the bronze Saturday at Eton Dorney.

The win for Glenn Ochal, Henrik Rummel, Charles Cole and Scott Gault was the country's first medal in the event since the Barcelona Games in 1992.
