NZ junior rowers sharp at world champs
Fri, 17 Aug 2012 11:53a.m.
The momentum continues for New Zealand rowing after enjoying a second good day at world junior championships in Bulgaria.
Following New Zealand's medal success at the London Olympics, the junior rowers have all looked sharp during the first two days of competition at Plovdiv.
The junior men's quad of Mitchell Mackenzie-Mol, Russell Crampton, Cameron Crampton and Corey McCaffrey are through to their semi-final following a strong row.
They follow the junior men's coxed four, and junior women's quad scull and coxless four crews, who all impressed.
Senior divisions of non-Olympic senior events are being run in parallel with the junior events.
New Zealand's Lucy Strack dominated her repechage to move into the quarter-finals of the senior lightweight single scull.
On Thursday the lightweight men's pair of Armin Svoboda and Alistair Bond dominated their senior heat.
The five-day regatta finishes on Monday morning (NZT).
