Sent to Tokyo as reserves for the Canadian eights
team, Hungerford and Jackson were allowed to enter
the coxless pairs as compensation. Given only six
weeks to get used to each other, they had their first
race together ever in the opening round of the
Olympics... Hungerford and Jackson were considered
such long shots that no Canadian journalists were
present for their race. The shell that they used...
was the same shell that had been used by Fifer and
Hecht when they won the gold medal in 1956.
