Rower Damir Martin has claimed Croatia’s third medal at the Olympic Games in Rio on Saturday…
Martin won the silver medal after finishing second in the final of the Men’s single sculls at Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon on Saturday.
Martin, who cruised into the final after winning a qualifier and coming second in the semi-final, was beaten in a photo-finish by defending Olympic champion Mahe Drysdale from New Zealand. Czech Republic’s Ondřej Synek finished in third place.
The medal is another for Martin’s impressive collection. He already has an Olympic silver medal, two World Championship gold medals and a European Championship gold.
Croatia currently has two gold medals, won by shooter Josip Glasnović and the Sinković brothers in the Men’s double sculls rowing.
