Hot weather, warm water, fast heats at rowing’s junior championships

A new junior World Best Time in the men's single sculls was the feature of the first day of racing at the 2018 World Rowing Junior Championships in Racice, Czech Republic. Clark Dean of the United States took over five seconds off the former best time in a stunning performance of sculling control. 

With temperatures in the mid 30s Celsius, warm water and a slight tail breeze, conditions were looking good for fast times in this first day of heats.
