So then I watched...
Things I enjoyed watching on the World Rowing video just this morning.
Eskild Ebbessen you are a legend.
|One of the most dynamic athletes in the World|
Another I enjoyed was seeing Tom James back in rowing and again I don't know Tom, but loved watching his rowing in 2006 when he was in the pair with Colin Smith as the GB pair. They were a sharp combination and with Tom now in the 3 seat of the GB four he looks like his is moving very well. Again he has an athletic movement which is spring like and elastic.
Another amazing performance for me was Ekaterina Karsten that capacity to over haul everyone in the last 500m.
Add to this Marcel Hacker for the fact that since 1997 I have known him and more so in 2000 when his coach Andreas was not given access to the Olympic boat area. Anyway to now see Marcel really making some changes the most obvious is his use of body swing and length of stroke. Marcel I think has polarised people over the year with his approach, but you can't deny him this change in movement and composure is wonderful to see.
Obviously haven't watch all races but was great to see closing racing and some athletes returning and making changes. It's an exciting time now going into the next World Cups.
