Peter, thank you for posting the video - I watched all of the race and you could certainly see at about 18 minutes in, that the German rower was showing signs of fatigue. I am glad that physically, both men made a good recovery, although perhaps the effect on them mentally might prove harder to cope...

He did sing "Don't Cry for me Argentina" in Evita, which sort of fits the lyric Dave has posted (I can think of "of what a circus, oh what a show ...")?
I love these clue ones
