I think that there are six boats on our level. New Zealand are different, they are not in our range. They will win the semifinals and the finals.

Anton BRAUN Interview

Rising Star - November 2012

Making his Olympic debut at the tender age of the young age of 22, Germany’s Anton Braun is a promising talent for the future of German sweep rowing. Braun made his international debut at junior level in 2008 and rose through the ranks quickly, winning a bronze medal in his first appearance in an international boat at the World Rowing Junior Championships and adding an under-23 bronze to that haul one year later. In 2010, after making his senior debut in the men’s four at one of the World Rowing Cup regattas, Braun was crowned under-23  World Champion in the men’s eight and then won yet another bronze medal at the 2011 World Rowing Under 23 Championships, this time in the men’s pair. Coming into the 2012 season, Braun and Felix Drahotta made a real impact on a competitive field, winning a gold medal at the Samsung World Rowing Cup I in Belgrade, Serbia. At the Olympic Rowing Regatta, Braun and Drahotta won the B Final, finishing seventh overall. World Rowing spoke to Braun to find out about his motivations, his like and dislikes and his training schedule.
