Australia's sports minister Kate Lundy Wednesday promised to wear a Team GB shirt and row the Olympic course after losing a bet with her British counterpart.
Lundy said she would honour the wager after Australia failed to win more medals than Britain at the London Olympics. With five days to go, Britain are third in the medals table and Australia are 12th.
"You guys are having a brilliant Games, your athletes have really responded to the challenge," she told Channel 4 news.
"It's a traditional wager that we have with the UK sports minister so I don't regret it, it was always going to be on, and I've already conceded I know I'm going to be rowing out of Eton."
Her British opposite number, Hugh Robertson, would have had to dribble a hockey ball near Australia House in central London, wearing an Australia shirt, if he had lost the bet.
