2006 World Rowing Championships

August 26-27, 2006

Eton, England

This year's World Championships is being held on Lake Dorney at Eton in the UK, which is scheduled to be the Olympic course in 2012. In the international races held on this course so far, wind has been a significant factor, and placid conditions have not been the rule. In yesterday's semi-finals that was not the case, as the races were held in good conditions, but earlier in the week, the program could not be completed because of weather conditions. Varying conditions, however, often make no difference in the outcome, as the best crews often seem capable of handling adverse conditions better than less capable crews.

Below are the results, in JAMCO's illustrative format, and medal count from the 14 Olympic-class events.

On Saturday, Australia won two golds in M2- and W2x. Other gold medals were Belarus in W1x, New Zealand in M1x, Canada in W2-, France in the M2x and Great Britain in the M4-. The USA was shut out of the medals and took 4th in the W2-, 4th in the M4-, 6th in the W1x, and did not qualify for the “A” finals in the other four events.

In Sunday's “A” finals in the 7 Olympic events China won 2 gold medals in the lightweight women's double sculls and the lightweight men's coxless four. The other gold medals were won by Denmark in the lightweight men's double sculls, Russia in the women's quadruple sculls, Poland in the men's quadruple sculls, the United States in the women's eight and Germany in the men's eight. The United States won the bronze medal in the men's eight and placed 6th in the women's quadruple sculls.

About JAMCO Race Bulletins

Color Coding — Real time 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. White crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.

Printing Tips — When printing JAMCO race bulletins, you may get better results if you set your browser to print background colors and images.
