In the men’s single sculls the experienced German Marcel Hacker had to compete against the olympic silver (CZE) and bronze (GBR) medalists. Marcel showed a really solid race only missing the bronze by 0.31 seconds behind Bohzilov from Bulgaria.
The last and probably most exciting event of the regatta was the finals of the men’s eights. From the previous race for lanes it was clear Great Britain, France and Poland would battle for who would take the gold. The fully SRD equipped Polish eight took the lead very early in the race. Only in the last 200 meters Great Britain managed to squeeze ahead resulting in a silver medal for the Polish eight only 0.43 seconds away from first place.
We wish all crews good luck with their preparation towards the next World Rowing Cup in Luzern and we hope to see you there.
