We read this suggestion as a way of picking a quad scull crew reported in a rowing forum.

What do you think is inherently unfair about the selection process?

Three seats are already assigned, and fixed. Three more rowers (A, B, C) will race for the remaining spot in the number 2 seat. Proposed schedule: 2x 1250 m with tailwind (if any) in the morning, half an hour between races, first with A then with B.

Winner is he who is faster by 2 s or more or, if inside that margin, chosen by the national team coach. Then in the afternoon, the same again with the winner and C. Labels A/B/C are assigned by random draw.

Who would you want to be, A/B or C?
