Share this Post

 width=Since the less-than-expected medal haul at the Karapiro World Champs, the US have clearly been thinking hard about how to improve their team performances for the London Olympic Games 2012.

A neat summary of the series of announcements from US Rowing and Megan Kalmoe (athletes rep) is on the Rowing Related Blog by Bryan Kitch.

For non-US rowers, the background context is that in USA national team rowing is split into tow “Camp” boats where the athletes train together in a single location with a named coach who picks the crew; and “Trials” boats where anyone can turn up to the national selection regatta, race and if they win (twice) they are the USA selected crew.  Camp boats include heavyweight 8, 4-, 4x.  Trials boats are M1x, W1x, M2-, W2-, LW1x, LM1x, LM2-, M2+, W4-, LM8+, LM4x, LW4x.
