Under-23 World Champion titles were for the taking today at the 2014 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Varese, Italy.

After a 40 minute delay to clear the course of weed, the A-finals began.  The sun came out, the water became absolutely flat and the wind died to barely a whisper for these late afternoon finals as a new star duo was born. Usually World Best Times are set in tail-wind conditions. Not today. In the women's pair Kerri Gowler and Grace Prendergast did it by absolutely dominating their race. The new time: 7:02.89. Russia's women's quadruple sculls got close to setting a Best Time and so did France in the lightweight men's quadruple sculls.

All business for under-23 semifinals

The 2014 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Varese, Italy has moved through heats, repechage and quarterfinals and progressed into the business end of the regatta - the semifinals.

Two semifinals were raced today; the lightweight men's pair and the men's four. Narrowed down to the final 12 boats in each of these two boat classes, these under-23 rowers raced in warm, sunny conditions with Lake Varese spicing up the rowing with a bit of a cross-wind.

Overcast skies, speedy heats at under-23 champs

The World Rowing Under 23 Championships for 2014 continued on Lake Varese for day two of heats. Overcast skies, cooler temperatures in the high teens (Celsius) and flat water offered ideal racing conditions in Varese, Italy.

Last night a thunder storm came through Varese dampening the regatta course and adding a freshness to the air. Fresh and ready to race today were many of the best under-23 rowers in the world. Some of these athletes have come through the junior ranks while others are debuting internationally. This added to the excitement, enthusiasm and unexpectedness that makes up under-23 rowing.
