2005 World Rowing Championships
Nagaragawa International Regatta Course
Biographies and Exclusive Analyses
The 2005 World Rowing Championships come to a close in Gifu, Japan, on the Nagaragawa International Regatta Course on Saturday and Sunday, September 3rd and 4th. This is the first FISA World Championship regatta to be held in Japan. The 1964 Olympic Games were the first and only previous FISA world level championship competition to be held in Japan. JAMCO will be presenting race results for the FA Finals only in the 14 Olympic class events for this year's Worlds in its usual race result format. In addition, JAMCO has mixed the FA finalists' times in previous races they have rowed in Gifu to give some indication as to how the FA final in each of the 14 Olympic events might progress if these crews row their FA finals in exactly the same time patterns as they rowed their previous races.
[Note: These preview graphics were created before lanes assignments were announced for the FA finals, so they may differ from the actual races.]
The FA finals in these events will be run on Saturday and Sunday, midday in Gifu, which in the United States will be between 10:15 pm and 11:45 pm on Friday night on the West Coast for the first 7 FA events, and again between 10:00 pm and 11:30 pm Saturday night on the West Coast for the next 7 FA events.

WorldRowers.com uses the proprietary JAMCO international rowers database to present the Olympic and World Championship biographies of those rowers who have been identified as of identified as of August 10, 2004. Boating changes announced after that date will be added as we learn about them. The data is arranged by event. For each year they competed in the Olympics or World Championships, that year is shown, followed by the event they were in and where they placed, e.g., 2002 8+ 4th.
JAMCO Pre-Race Analyses are based on an analysis of race data plus over 40 years of experience in competitive rowing, including Olympic competition.
Color Coding For Race Results Re-Created by JAMCO
Race result reports produced by JAMCO from reported Olympic racing times depict crews at each 500 meter interval, using graphics and color conventions to show position and relative movement of the individual crews in each interval of the race.
Movements by crews during each 500 meter interval are highlighted by different
colors. Gold (yellow) crews are closing on the leader in the current 500.
Silver (light blue) crews are closing on the second place crew, but falling
further behind the leader. Bronze (orange) crews are closing on the third
place crew, but falling further behind the leader and the second place crews.
crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.
