2 more booked today; probably another 2 will come tomorrow; it's gr8 for a country who had just 3 boats at Rio and one lousy bronze medal

 

Watch out for Radis/Bodnar in women's double sculls; youngest crew here (20 & 21 yo) but won semifinal in champion style and have a bright future ahead

Wow, well done! I am happy because i started to follow rowing by watching women eights with great Romania in Barcelona 1992. 

So 5 crews until now. How many rowers is that?

- women's Lightweight Singles (h.13:38)

- men's Lightweight Singles (h.13:55)

- women's Lightweight Pairs (14:47)

- men's Lightweight Pairs (h.15:03)

- men's Lightweight Quadruple Sculls (h.15:36)

And there's the first Dutch medal, silver in the pararowing single sculls :cheer: (don't know about the men yet, I'll watch that in between the other finals :p )

 

Meanwhile the commentators on the FISA stream were wondering what the animals the athletes get a doll of on the podium are. "Some kind of marmot...but there are no Austrian marmots." Someone didn't Google first :p

Actually Barcelona wast the best Olympics for our rowing :) after that we became kinda lazy and focused only on women's eights.

 

For Tokyo we have qualified until now W2x, W4-, LW2x, M2x and M4- boats, which add up to a total of 14 rowers. Tomorrow we will probably get quotas for W8+ and M2- crews, e.g. 25 rowers

Thats really impressive. :clap:

I remember those Games even though i was really young. Rowing was important sport for me. 

Many nations cant even select eights and Romania is among only few nations that can send eights to every OG.
