Rowing Canada Aviron – It was back to six-lane racing at World Rowing Cup 3 in Rotterdam and with a prediction of some variable wind, the lane order for boats changed to prioritize the top crews. 

Ellen Gleadow (Vancouver, BC) was the first Canadian crew to contest the A Finals at World Cup 3 following a 2nd place finish in the semi-finals this morning. Gleadow shot out to front of the pack for the first 500m with Georgia Nesbitt of Australia, Marie-Louise Draeger of Germany and Imogen Grant of Great Britain close behind. Gleadow fought hard to maintain the leading pace, slipping back slightly at 1000m, and ultimately crossing the 2000m in 4th overall.

Andrea Proske (Langley, BC) and Gabrielle Smith (Unionville, ON) pipped Germany at the finish line by 0.04 seconds to steal the race win in the Women’s Double repechage and book their ticket to tomorrow’s A Final.
