Osborne is going to destroy the field...

and if they can find a good partner for him, the Lightweight Doubles in Tokyo already have their Gold Medal winner (RIP Ireland, Norway, Italy and the other pretenders), even if transition from single sculls to doubles is not always automatic...

and the Sinkovic bros looks in good shape, too...

 

I wonder how many close and exciting races we're going to have in these Champs? :mumble:

 

so far, both Lightweight Singles and the Women's Pairs look one-sided to say the least...meanwhile Romania maybe could make it something more than a red carpet walk for the Croatian monsters...

 

it doesn't look that promising for the show in general...

p.s. tv/streaming pictures production is really awful...basically from those shots you can't understand anything about the race (excepts for the set timings at 500/1000/1500m and finish line)...:facepalm::wall:

watching our men's pair boat this season is so frustrating...:cry:

I really hope next year we can get back to last year's guys, our crew of the season, our wonderful world champions...

Would be great, but i don't see any decent partner he could team up with. A couple of years ago Moos/Osborne looked like the future of mens double sculls, but i dont know what happened then ...

4 out of 5 Canadian boats have won their heats so far! What a great start.

Well, it wasn't that bad in the heats from the Lightweight double sculls: Second Place. Put Osborne in it, and they might at least have a chance for a medal.

finally, some good news for Italy...our Lightweight Double Sculls has recorded the best time overall in their class and the injection of last year's world champion in Pairs, Matteo Lodo, has revitalized our Fours crew...

 

so far, for what I've seen, the men's Four is the race where we can expect the best show of the entire Championships...there are at least 5/6 boats all capable of winning the Gold medal (and at the same time, risking of not even making the A Final)...:yikes:
