Hot racing, World Best Times and new World Champions
The 2014 World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam saw a day of fast and furious finals as rowers not only went after gold medals, but also after World Best Times. In tail wind conditions, under drizzly, overcast skies, the best rowers in the world fought it out to become World Champions.
At the end of racing five new World Best Times had been set including a spectacular performance by Ukraine in the men's quadruple sculls. Stroked by Ivan Dovgodko, Ukraine was chased to the line by Great Britain.
