The Estonian men's quadruple sculls team, consisting of Andrei Jämsä, Allar Raja, Tõnu Endrekson and Kaspar Taimsoo, earned a bronze medal — the country's first Olympic medal in the 2016 Rio Games — in the final for their event on Thursday.

At the 500-meter mark, Estonia was in fifth place before rowing into third by the halfway point, a position onto which they held through the finish line. Their bronze is the first Olympic medal Estonia has earned in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

The gold medal went to Germany, who led the pack from start to finish with a time of 6:06:81, and silver to Australia, who finished with a time of 6:07:96. The four Estonian athletes earned the last spot on the podium with a time of 6:10:65.

The other three competitors in the men's quadruple sculls A-final were Poland (6:12:09), the UK (6:13:08) and Ukraine (6:16:30).
