Race report: Junior finals complete rowing’s mega championships
The best of under 19-year-old rowers in the world competed in the 2016 finals of the World Rowing Junior Championships.
These got going after a delay in racing due to a passing thunderstorm at the last day of the combined 2016 World Rowing Senior, Under 23 & Junior World Rowing Championships in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Conditions on the water of the Willem-Alexander Baan Rowing Regatta course was a rather brisk tail-cross wind on bumpy water. Fast times were expected.
