Preview

Blasberg of Germany will be trying to retain her gold medal standing in this event with her third new partner in four year (this year Reimer, a 2003 gold medalist from the lightweight quad). Moves have been made by Poland, Romania, Australia and the United States to close the gap on favorite Germany. Poland has brought back Mokronowski, 2001 silver medalist in this event. Romania, with the biggest move of all, has reconstituted her 2000 Olympic Championship double in this event (Burcica and Alupei) to challenge Germany. Sally Newmarch, two time medalist, hopes to boost Australia's 2nd place crew up one notch this year to gold. Lisa Schlenker, a close contender last month for a qualifying slot in the heavyweight double sculls event returns from her 4th place finish in this event last year with a new partner.

Final A Pre-Race Analysis

Germany's quest to repeat last year's gold medal performance in Athens appears to have been successfully compromised by Romania's reconstituted 2000 Sydney gold medalist crew. Romania took the lead at 1000 meters in her semi-final and held off furious last 500 meter challenges by both the Netherlands and Germany to hold on for that victory. Romania's finishing time in that semi-final race was slightly more than 2 seconds faster than Australia's winning time in the other semi-final. However, Australia also faced strong challenges from Poland in the 3rd and 4th 500 meter intervals, and from China in the last 500, so there is no reason to believe either Romania or Australia backed off a bit in winning these semis. So, give the odds to Romania to repeat her 2000 Olympic Championship with the gold in Athens, leaving the silver and bronze medals up for grabs between the Netherlands, Germany, Australia and Poland, all projected to be within 2/3rds of a length of each other at the finish line.
