First dispatch from Graham:
Day 1 is done. Was the hotest day yet. By the end of the races it felt like we were paddling in an oven. Can’t drink water fast enough.Mixed was great. We powered like crazy from start to finish and had nothing left at the end. We won gold by 1 second over US and 4 seconds ahead of Germany.
Other results: 4th in Men’s 2000m in a tough field that included Hungarians, US, Russia, Germany and China.
