This week in the rowing online news several stories caught our eye:

After all this time I no longer do weights and yet feel as strong as ever in the boat. I have done PBs this year and expect more to come. I feel like I am part of a great team which is set for something special in the months ahead. I have been the young kids dreaming of going to the games. Add to this I was fortunate to be part of an amazing crew and experience success as a young athlete. I am now an older athlete and at times still feel just as young and enthusiastic. Some times though I do feel older. This feeling does loose the luster. Not often but at times the experience feel less fresh. I think this is why at times I loose sight or sense of perspective. This is hard to explain and I may make a mess of it here.

  • And don’t forget it’s the Boat Race this weekend.  Oxford Coxswain Zoe de Toledo is confident of victory – though we’d caution any athlete making predictions about what happens on the Tideway.
