Olympic Rowing Liveblog – Revised Lane Draw

The wind at Eton Dorney, as yesterday, is a moderate cross/head wind. It’s blowing from the island side (Lane 6) across the lake. The FISA Fairness Commission have decided that they will redraw the lanes for A & B Finals to account for unfair conditions across the lake. Crews who qualified for the finals in the top positions will be moved into lanes 5 and 6. Lower qualifiers in the lower numbered lanes.

The Australian Men’s Four may now be at a greater disadvantage as they are drawn two lanes away from the GB crew after they paddled to the line in the semifinal to come second.

Revised Lane Draw:
