Tomorrow morning at 9:30am local time (that’s 4:30am EST), Sarah Zelenka and I will be competing in the VERY first heat of the Olympic rowing program, racing the women’s pair in Heat 1. We will be matching up against Romania, Argentina, Germany, and Great Britain. Great Britain’s Helen Glover and Heather Stanning have finished second only to New Zealand’s Juliette Haigh and Rebecca Scown in the last two world championships. Glover and Stanning are unbeaten this season. Also in the heat is the pair from Romania of five-time Olympic Champion Georgeta Andrunache and Nicoleta Albu. It is definitely a challenging draw, but we are excited to see some of the top dogs early on in the regatta. Cross your fingers for a great race and fair conditions!
See you on the other side 🙂
