Rowing in Rio: Revised Schedule
August 7, 2016
Races were cancelled today after two 1 hr delays in an attempt to fix the buoy lines that did not hold up in the strong winds. After 2 hours of unsuccessful repair attempts and an unfavorable forecast for the remainder of the day, the races were cancelled. Athletes were still permitted to launch for “rough” water training, which was then quickly terminated when the bad (should really say worse) weather came in earlier than expected. Dust was flying, boat racks were shaking and the lake was covered in whitecaps.
Meghan races in the women’s 8+ heat and Emily is in the 9am EST w1x rep.
