In 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Estonian rowing legend Jüri Jaanson and Tõnu Endrekson competed in the double sculls event. The duo was third in their preliminary heat. In the semi-finals the men were second and assured themselves a place in the Final A. They finished second in the final just 0,05 seconds in front of the British duo Matthew Wells and Stephen Rowbotham.
