This week in the rowing online news several stories caught our eye
- Australia names its Olympic rowing team including Kim Crow who will contest both 2x and 1x.
Kim Crow is also out to create history as one of a select few Olympians to contest two events at the one Games. Crow secured a single scull quota place when double scull partner Brooke Pratley was in doubt with injury as a Games insurance policy. Pratley’s return to the boat was heralded with a silver medal at the Munich World Cup behind the British World Champions.
“I am incredibly excited to sit on the start line in the double with Brooke. When I see how far we have come in a couple of weeks, I get tingles thinking about the glide of the boat after another training block!” an excited Crow said.
- Kiwi House – a temporary venue in london for visiting new zealanders to congregate – by Kings Cross. Apparently there is a Brazil House too.
