New Zealand wins overall trophy at World Rowing Cup III in Poznan
The 2016 World Rowing Cup III turned on ideal rowing conditions for the day of finals on Lake Malta in Poznan, Poland. This was a relief after the last couple of days of racing saw some trying conditions. Racing got off to a great start with Heather Stanning and Helen Glover of Great Britain being pushed to a new World Cup Best Time by a new New Zealand combination of Rebecca Scown and Genevieve Behrent.
The racing continued Saturday afternoon in slightly calmer conditions with the sun shining through the clouds. Athletes in the international boat classes raced for the podium.
Rachel Morris of Great Britain set the standard when she claimed a new World Best Time in the para women's single sculls at the 2016 World Rowing Cup III in Poznan, Poland. This was the first final of the regatta and it was raced in bumpy tail wind conditions.
The final World Rowing Cup in the series of three, 2016 World Rowing Cup III, moved into day three of racing featuring semifinals. Racing in Poznan, Poland on Lake Malta saw rowers having tail wind conditions under partially cloudy skies and bumpy water. The water remained bumpy, but with fast times helped by the tail wind.
