Preview

Germany seems a lock to regain the Olympic Championship it lost in 2000 to Italy. These four German scullers already have 23 gold medals (and many more assorted silvers and bronzes) to their credit, and should add 4 more to that gold total in Athens. The 3rd place Polish and 5th place Russian quads from last year return intact. The 2nd place Czech quad has one change, and 4th place Australia 3 changes, both shuffling the deck a bit to move up in Athens. Perhaps the biggest move is Italy's, which has added Sydney Olympic Champion and 9 time medalist, Allessandro Corona, to propel its 6th place 2003 quad into the medals.

Final A Pre-Race Analysis

Our Preview for this event appears to have been a bit hasty handing Germany the gold medal so soon. Poland, 2nd place in 2002 and 3rd place last year, rolled past Germany in the last 500 meters of their semi-final, edging out a victory by 0.2 seconds, coming back from a 0.8 second deficit with 500 meters to go. The Czech quad in the other semi-final gave up an early lead at the first 500 meter mark to Russia, but took over after that and closed with a win by 1.3 seconds over Russia in that race. Interestingly, Poland's semi-final time was just a tenth of a second ahead of the Czech's time. So, based on semi-finals, you have three crews (Poland, Czech Republic, Germany), each successively separated by only a tenth of a second at the finish. No way to call that one, particularly since Belarus finished in third place only 2 seconds behind the Czechs in the semis, and the Ukraine finished third only 1.4 seconds behind the Poles in their semi. Bottom line, a barn burner Final A race with all six crews within 2 seconds of each other.
