The top 3 in each quarterfinal will move to the A/B semifinals - which is two semifinals with 6 rowers in each. 
The bottom 3 in each quarterfinal will move to the C/D semifinals - same with 6 rowers each. 
Only the ones who qualify for the A/B semifinals will stand a chance to qualify for the A finals - which is where you can win a medal. 
If you don't reach the A/B semifinals, you DO NOT stand a chance to win a medal. 

...

Here's all you need to know about what this result means for Dattu Bhokanal: Semifinals, yes. Medal, no. 

...

That's it from our live coverage of Bhokanal's event. His semifinals will be on Aug 10th at 7.40pm Indian time. 

...

Bhokanal finishes the fourth quarterfinals with a time of 6.59.89. 

...

Damir Martin finishes first but Dattu Bhokanal finishes fourth and will hence qualify for the C/D semifinals. 

...

Damir Martin still leading the race from Alan Campbell and Natan Węgrzycki-Szymczyk. Bhokanal is still in fourth and will need to push in this second. 

...

Bhokanal has now fallen to fourth - 6 seconds behind leader Damir Martin.

...

Bhokanal's stroke rate is 31 - 3 behind Martin's and 2 behind Campbell's. 

...

Bhokanal will need to keep this position - or better - to qualify for the upper semifinals. If he finishes below third, he'll be relegated to the C/D semifinals and will lost out on the chance to make it to the A finals - the finals with the medals. 

...

At the 500m meter, Martin is in first, Campbell is in second and Bhokanal is in third. 

...

He's fallen to second one behind Croatia's Damir Martin - who alongside Campbell are the favourites to go through. 

...

Bhokanal gets off to a strong start again taking the lead for India. 

...

And we're off! 

...

Dattu Bhokanal is in row 5 of the the QF4

Next up, Dattu Bhokanal's event! Here we go. 

...

Belgium's Hannes Obreno finishes first in the third quarter-finals thereby locking his participation in the A/B semifinals of the single sculls event. 

...

Dattu Bhokanal is the only rower from India to travel to Rio for the Olympic games. 

...

Bhokanal's start in his heats was exceptional and he held the lead for a while but slowly faded to third as he get closer to the end. Alan Campbell of Britain, meanwhile, is the kind of rower who does the exact opposite. He starts slow and keeps gaining pace all the way till the end. 

...
...

The third quarter-finals has taken off again and the rowers are away. Juan Cabrera - who was in Dattu Bhokanal's heats in the weekend - is one of the favourites to go through to the upper semi-finals. 

...
...

It's likely that one of the six rowers left the dock before the green light was given. We're in for a restart. 

...

The alarms are going off here in the third quarter-finals. There's going to be a reset. 

...

Mahe Drysdale - last Olympics' gold medal winner - just finished first in the second quarter-finals ahead of arch-rival Ondřej Synek - who won silver in the 2012 London games.
