PORT Melbourne’s Cameron McKenzie-McHarg was part of the rowing crew that finished sixth in the men’s eight final.
The Australians were never in the hunt in a strong field, beaten by Germany, Canada, Great Britain, United States and Netherlands.
Their time of 5:51.87 was almost three seconds slower than gold medallists Germany, though their final 500-metre split was the quickest in the field.
Elwood’s Samantha Richards had four points, four assists and three steals in the Opals’ 67-61 win over Brazil.
The Opals led from start to finish and had stretched their lead to 12 with five minutes remaining before the Brazilians hit back late.
Lauren Jackson (18 points, eight rebounds) and Liz Cambage (double double – 17 points, 10 rebounds) were the standout performers.
