Ladies, Heres some video of the eight from today, together with a link to the Australian men’s Olympic 4 from a couple of years back. I think you’ll find it illuminating to compare your rowing to this top class crew. Two things I think stand out. Your catches have improved a lot, but I hope you can see how relatively slow they are compared to this technically excellent four’s catches. Also, note how much speed and dynamic acceleration they have on the drive. If we all work hard to develop better catches, and improve our blade acceleration I think we will see a big jump in boat speed.
You have all made a lot of improvements in the last few weeks; we’re definitely heading in the right direction. Well done! Nick
