Pre-Olympic Summary

August 13, 2000 -- This event, with Stephen Redgrave of Great Britain going for his fifth consecutive Olympic Gold medal, a feat never before accomplished in any Olympic sport, is likely to be the most hotly contested event in Sydney. After cruising through three straight World Championship gold medals in '97, '98 and '99, and winning the first two legs of World Cup racing in Munich and Vienna, the British boys were finally beaten in Lucerne by Italy, New Zealand and Australia. This may have raised some questions about the prospects for the Brits in Sydney, but they must still be considered the favorites for gold, with a significant footnote for their Lucerne experience. Norway and France, the other 1999 World finalists, who have also done well in World Cup competition earlier this summer, and a new combination from the United States, are also serious medal contenders.
