Not really sure if our women are capable of medalling in 30 minutes, I wouldn't bet on it.

 

Aaaand it's a gold. :p

Welp :p

 

Totally surprised after them dramatically losing the gold in the European Championships, figured we can't go higher than 4th here :d

well, 1 Gold and 2 Silver medals in the Olympic classes is not "awful", but not exceptional, too...:evil:

tbh, the men's classes have been great in the long boats (waiting for the men's Eight, but even just making the final is a good result), good but not outstanding in the Lightweight Double Sculls (it's not a secret that Oppo & Ruta should have won Gold to "fill their contract" after dominating world cup and europeans), but a real disaster in the short boats (and in men's Pairs we were the defending champions, even if with a different crew)...

meanwhile, once again, the women's division is not less than shameful (the women's Pairs were 4th, but 15 seconds behind the top 2, only because most big names weren't at the start...the others couldn't even make the A-Final)...

we definitely should do better than this...

If Italy's performance was a disaster, the GB's was abysmal. Which it actually was. :p:facepalm:

Second world champion title for Milda Valčiukaitė and first ever world championships medal for her partner Ieva Adomavičiūtė :LTU:LTU:LTU:clap:

 

It's a very interesting story how this team actually developed, nice to see them coming close to the results that Milda reached with Vištartaitė.

Overall absolutely shocking performance by the german rowing team. Another huge disappointment after the horrible results at the shooting world championships. Germany should never win less medals in rowing than any other nation except for GB and maybe New Zealand. 2 golds and 4 medals in total should be the absolute minium at every major competition. Men's eight and womens quadruple sculls are locks for medals in Tokyo, but the other 2 medals have to come from 2 out of men's single sculls, men's quadruple sculls and men's lightweight double sculls.

Insane overperformances by Ireland and Canada, on the other hand GB and New Zealand were also pretty bad.

Netherlands had 2 third places, 2 fourth places, 2 fifth places, 2 seventh places and 1 eight place in their 9 Olympic boats. A decent result, but we expected more medals. Especially the M8+ (seventh) and M4- (fourth) performed disappointing.

Some very encouraging results for :CAN As always the women take the lead for Canada. However, some did under perform, such as the double sculls women (who won silver at the last World Cup). Also M1x athlete also did not compete due to injury. Only 21, and he is the defending World champion x2 in the U-23 world championships in this event.


Also nice to see the men's eights back. Although an 8th place finish here, their time was better than some of the teams in the A final.
