Preview

With Cop of Slovenia returning in the double this year to reclaim the gold he won in 2000, that clears the way for Tufte (Norway), Hacker (Germany) and Chalupa (Czech Republic) to nab the medals in this event. Tufte and Hacker have divided the golds between them the last 3 years with Tufte getting two (including last year's) and Hacker one. Chalupa was always lurking in the shadows, however, claiming a bronze and two fourth places in those same years.

Final A Pre-Race Analysis

Olaf Tufte, reigning World Champion from Norway in single sculls, probably came to Athens expecting to duke it out with last year's silver medalist from Germany, Marcel Hacker. However, Hacker's surprising third place finish in the semi-finals sent him to the FB finals. Now Tufte has other challengers to deal with in the FA finals. Foremost among them is Jaanson of Estonia, the World single sculling champion in 1990 in Tasmania, who has turned up in Athens posting the fastest split times and total times by far among all scullers in the semi-finals races. Right behind Jaanson is Maeyens of Belgium, posing an additional puzzle for Tufte. Though Tufte's splits in his semi-final victory were slower than Jaanson's in his semi-final victory, it should be noted that Tufte had a comfortable lead to sit on after the first 500 meters, but so did Jaanson. Neither man faced any serious challenge over the last 1500 meters. So what we have is the 1990 Champion vs. the 2003 Champion in this event, and the makings of either a great comeback (this is Jaanson's fourth Olympics, with no Olympic medals to his credit) or great anticipation of a comeback which falls a little short of realization. Always lurking in the domain of silver and bronze medal potential is Chalupa of the Czech Republic, whose history in this sport is as long as Jaanson's, and whose medal count is impressive indeed, including 5 silvers and 3 bronze medals since 1988.
