Women's Quadruple Sculls (W4X)

Final A

Result

This race was never in doubt from the winner's circle, as GER continued its decades long dominance of the Women's Quadruple Sculls event and won another gold medal. Last year's silver medalists at Worlds from UKR surprisingly fell off pace in the first 500 meters and never got back into medal contention. RUS was in 2nd place at the halfway mark and led third place GBR by half a length, as projected. Then it all changed. GBR pulled even with RUS with 500 meters to go, and the race for the silver medal was on. Over the last 500 meters, RUS and GBR matched each other's speed. At the end it took a photo finish to decide who really won the silver medal. The camera picked GBR, and RUS settled for the bronze. They were followed by a disappointed UKR in 4th, and the USA and DEN in 5th and 6th. Take a look at the JAMCO Replay on this one to see the pressure GBR put on RUS in the last 1000.
