Pre-Olympic Summary

August 13, 2000 -- Romania shows no signs of giving up the gold medal in Sydney, following its 1999 World Championship effort. In three successive World Cup competitions, Romania has placed 3rd in Munich, changed its line up, and placed 2nd and 1st in Vienna and Lucerne. Romania reversed it earlier Munich World Cup losses to both Netherlands and Belarus, defeating both of them in Lucerne. Others coming on strong in World Cup racing were Canada (3rd at 1999 Worlds and 2nd in Lucerne), and Australia (5th at 1999 Worlds with two 3rd place World Cup finishes at Vienna and Lucerne. Lurking very prominently in the background, however, is the United States which elected not to race in World Cup, but which placed second at both the 1998 and 1999 Worlds. Absent altogether from Sydney will be the German eight which was defeated in the Lucerne European Qualification regatta by Great Britain.
