Northern Ireland's Alan Campbell won bronze in the Olympic final of the men's single sculls race.  He is the third rower from Coleraine in County Londonderry to win a medal over the past 24 hours, with the Chambers brothers taking silver on Thursday.  It is the first time a team from Great Britain and Northern Ireland has won a medal in the single sculls since 1928.    Campbell appeared completely spent in his post-race interview and was helped to the medal ceremony by Sir Steve Redgrave.
