Quotes from Athletes

21 May 2014 Sam TOWNSEND
We definitely need to switch off now this evening, it's a long time between the races and you can start to think too much about stuff - you know, about how you started 10 years ago in this sport and then it all comes down to this 6.5 minute race. You can't let it cripple you. From the 800-metre mark the crowds start to get deeper at the sides and the noise starts cranking up and to be honest the boat felt like it was doing the same thing, being pushed forward by the noise.
