This afternoon marks the first day of racing for small boats singles, pairs, and fours. American medal hopeful Michelle Guerette just raced and came in an impressive second in her heat in the women’s single. Our men’s pair, the Winklevoss twins, will descend on the lake and be as symmetric as ever in their battle to advance to the medal final next Saturday. They are identical twins in every sense. One blinks, the other blinks. They drive the same car, like the same food, and share the same dance moves. For months guys on the team couldn’t figure out who was who. The men’s four heat’s gonna be a barn burner. Racing will be more physically taxing than usual because of the relentless heat.
