New Zealand's celebrated Evers-Swindell sisters, coming off two consecutive golds at Worlds in this event, are the pre-Olympic favorites, but not without serious challenges ahead of them. Australia has combined double gold medalist Robinson with last year's single sculler to make their run at New Zealand. Perhaps an even greater challenge may come from Germany's new combination of double gold medalist Waleska with last year's silver medalist in this event in order to move up one level on this year's medal podium. Not to be overlooked in the chase for the medals here are the Italians, bronze medalists in this event last year.

Final A Pre-Race Analysis

The Swindell sisters from New Zealand, World Champions each of the last two years, have lived up to their gold medal billing here in Athens so far. There is no indication that they will not be the Olympic Champions in this event on Saturday. The drama in this event will unfold in the race for silver and bronze. Expect Bulgaria to move out quickly on Great Britain and Germany, and very likely retain a shrinking lead all the way to the final 500 meters of the race. If Bulgaria's pattern in the heat and repechage is repeated in the finals, look for both Great Britain and Germany to go through Bulgaria in the last 500, and then fight it out between themselves for the silver and bronze medals, with Germany having a slight edge favoring them for the silver.
