Preview

Last year Tomkins and Ginn (two time Olympic golds in 1996 and 2000 in the "Awesome Foursome") swept to gold in the pair over long-time rivals from Great Britain (Pinsent and Cracknell, who have now moved into the coxless four), Croatia and South Africa. The Croatians and South Africans are back intact for revenge. Others to watch are Italy's 2003 5th place pair, a new Canadian combination built around Dave Calder (late of the 2003 gold medal eight), and another new combination from the United States.

Final A Pre-Race Analysis

Pre-race gold medalist favorites, Tomkins and Ginn, of Australia, World Champions last year, have performed like the gold medalists they are in both their Athens heat and semi-finals. There may be a run at them by Croatia in the last 500, but it is not likely to succeed. The Croatians should hold down the silver they won at last year's Worlds, unless the new pair combination from New Zealand improves enough with another race under their belts to overcome the Croatians. More likely, New Zealand will be concentrating on fighting off Germany, Serbia and Montenegro and South Africa for the bronze medal. Do not count out South Africa, which though the fourth finisher in its semi-final, was awarded third place and a place in the FA finals, after its protest against the second place finishers from Canada, which veered into South Africa's lane in the last few meters of their semi-final, was upheld. According to South Africa's protest, this affected South Africa's progress, resulting in its crab, just before the finish line. It is notable that with 500 meters to go, South Africa was in 4th place in its semi-final, but only 1 second behind the leader, Germany, so it cannot be counted out of the medals in the finals.
