World Rowing Cup Confirmed Finalists after heated Competition

World Rowing Cup heated competition

At the start of the semifinals and repechages at the World Rowing Cup III in Lucerne, Switzerland, today, athletes were once again treated to ideal racing conditions on the Rotsee. With medal positions up for grabs, competition was fierce and margins were slim. In several instances, the margin between qualifying for the A-final and not was less than one second.

Confirmed lightweight single sculls finalists

The first team to compete for gold will be the lightweight single scullers, with their finals slated for this afternoon. Scullers competed for the top three spots in their semifinals, which were held in the middle of the morning. Imogen Grant of Great Britain will be the favorite to win gold this afternoon after recording the quickest time in the lightweight women’s single sculls semifinals, 7:38.78.

While the lightweight men’s single sculls semifinal’s first semifinal had a full complement of scullers, only four scullers were left after medical withdrawals, and it was a race to avoid finishing last. The two Uruguayans claimed the final two spots after Paul O’Donovan, with Sid Ali Boudina of Algeria failing to qualify when he crossed the finish line first.

Men’s pair racing is intense

Only the top three boats from the first semifinal’s four boats that crossed the finish line within two seconds made it to the A-final. Romania missed qualifying by 0.74 seconds, joining Australia1, Serbia, and Great Britain2. While Spain had a quick start in the second semifinal, which was just as thrilling, Great Britain1 managed to pull away from the pack in the latter stages of the race to win. Wynne-Griffith and George from Britain will try to overturn the outcome of last weekend’s Henley Royal Regatta, where Macdonald and Mackintosh from New Zealand defeated them by a third of a length.
