Anticipation and tension for Olympic finals at Varese World Rowing Cup
There is always a feeling of anticipation around the first regatta of the season and World Rowing Cup I in Varese, Italy was no different. Racing had already been intense with a slew of photo finishes in yesterday's semifinals. Today the athletes had to contend with cold conditions and rain but flat water. The weather had caused the racing programme to be pushed forward, but it was expected to get through the programme without a weather-caused hitch.
