Greece’s Stefanos Ntouskos Won the Gold in Men’s Rowing Single Sculls Final

TOKIO –  Stefanos Ntouskos won the men’s single sculls gold medal to claim the country’s first medal of the Tokyo Games.

Ntouskos won the 4th Olympic medal for Greece in the history of rowing and the first gold.

Greece’s Stefanos Ntouskos made a strong closing burst over the the final 250 meters to win the men’s single sculls.

Ntouskos led early only to see Norway’s Kjetil Borch begin to close the gap with 500 meters to go. Ntouskos then found the late power to pull away and build a lead as large as a boat length down the stretch.

Borch won silver. Croatia’s Damir Martin rallied late to take the bronze.
