Report from World Rowing Championships

Thanks to Coach Becky’s savvy use of Twitter we have all remained updated on Emily’s progress through Worlds! If you’re not in the “Twitter-verse”, here’s the scoop: Emily finished in her heat with a time of 8:38.57 and will race again tomorrow, September 27th in Repechage 2 (R2) at 11:55am, facing off against USA, China, and Spain. As for our second Ithaca alum Erik Frid, the men’s quad finished with a time of 6:05 and will race again today in Repechage 1 (R1) at 1:20pm. Go Bombers!!

There is no shortage of excitement in Sarasota right now and Becky has been kind enough to share some great photos and stories of all that is happening so far:

Local schools got involved in the fun and had their students study a nation competing at Worlds and design and create a banner for that team. These banners are hung between the parking lot and entrance to the venue in Florida. The students will meet the athletes of their assigned nation on Wednesday.
