Preview

Denmark is poised with two consecutive gold medals in 2002 and 2003 to pick off the biggest gold of all this year. Denmark and the Netherlands, Italy and Germany (who placed 1st through 4th, respectively, last year) all return intact, apparently standing pat on their 2003 line-ups. Canada (5th last year) has added veteran Ian Brambell to her crew, and Ireland has one change, both countries looking to move up this year.

Final A Pre-Race Analysis

Three of these crews, Italy, Denmark and Australia, in their respective semi-finals races, had times within less than a second of each other with 500 meters to go and also at the finish line. In Denmark's victory, Ireland was in 2nd place at 500 to go, but was no threat to Denmark at that point. In fact, Ireland faded to 3rd and was passed by the Netherlands, which was also no threat to Denmark's victory. There is no indication from these times that Denmark had to go all out to finish first in that race. By contrast, in the other semi-final, Italy was pushed to the wall in the last 500 by Australia, whose final charge fell short by only 0.2 seconds short of taking that victory from Italy. Based on this, and Denmark's two successive gold medals in the last two years, give the odds to Denmark for the gold here, with Italy and Australia going at it again in the last 500 for the silver and bronze.
