Mike Spraklen says

You have to believe you can achieve.
We have another 2-3 months and certainly we will find more speed

I have a passion for the guys. Rowers are the same the world over and you want to help them – it motivates me.
Spraklen is a specialist coach for mens eights and has delivered multiple Olympic medals for countries from Canada to the UK and USA from his methods.

Russia will surely be a force to be reckoned with as their performance in the European Champs showed – coming second to GBR in the repecharge and stepping up to win a silver behind defending Olympic title holders, Germany in the final.

Expect more from these guys as the Spraklen magic starts to work for them.
