Rowing FISA World Championships 2018

Recommended Posts

OMG!!! :yikes: our men's Quadruple Sculls basically has stopped rowing after just 1000m and it's been humiliated by their opponents...

and after the show they put on at the European Champs, it was supposed to be our best medal chance among the Olympic boats...:facepalm::wall:

Dutch boats :NED performed pretty good. 4 teams (Olympic boats) directly to the semis, only the M4x to the repechages. Tomorrow 4 other chances (W8, M8, W2x, W4-)!

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.

I believe it when i see it. Would be great if Germany could finally build some variety instead of always relying on both quadruple sculls and mens eight. 5 medals (those 3 mentioned before + Zeidler + mens lightweight double sculls) in Tokyo would be good, although the womens side should be much stronger than it currently is. My hope is that the strong second german team in womens quadruple sculls will be used to build a crew with medal winning potential in another event and that Naske will team up with someone else to build a strong boat for 2020 instead of trying to regain his spot in mens single sculls.

Will medals be awarded in the lightweight men's pairs (3 entries) and in the lightweight women's pairs (2 entries)?

as far as I know, A = yes, B = no...but I'm gonna try and check out deeper in the rulebook if there's something about that...

 

Edit: I just read the entire rulebook, and there's no reference to the medals not being awarded in competitions with less than 3 entries...therefore, I suppose that also in the women's LW Pairs USA and Italy will get their honors, despite this event is definitely a farce (well, not that the 3-crew races are really a serious thing)...:crazy:

Italy just made the final in the men's Eight...:bounce::bowdown:

and this time it's a very unexpected result, since the entire season didn't go well in this boat for Italy...

USA, AUS (from the 1st heat) and GER (they won the second heat with 1.4 secs margin over ITA) are the other boats already qualified for the A final...all the other crews must try and find their place through the repechage round...

We have 6 crews in finals; medals might come from M 2-, LW 2x and W 8+. Looking forward to the duel between Sinkovic brothers and Tudosa+Cozmiuc.

the Olympic events Finals have started...

 

and Canada won a  wonderful battle against New Zealand in the Women's Pair...they just rowed another race compared to the rest of the field, in fact Spain edged out Italy for the Bronze Medal, but good 14 seconds behind the eventual winners...

 

in the men's Pairs, instead, it's a one-boat show by the Sinkovic brothers, with ROU and FRA fighting hard for Silver and Bronze...and it's Romania that edge out France for the second place...Canada and New Zealand, who had a strong start, then literally burned out and ended up well behind the medal winners...

 

next up, the Lightweight Double Sculls (ladies first, of course :d)...
