Golden fours reunited as Foster sparkles again
Saturday 15 April 2000
Steve Redgrave will head the Great Britain team in the coxless fours at the World Cup Regatta at Munich in June, writes Hugh Matheson. He will once again join Matthew Pinsent along with James Cracknell and Tim Foster, who has displaced last year's team member, Ed Coode.
The coxless four - World Championship winners in 1997 and 1998 - have been reunited for an Olympic bid. Foster, who was removed from the boat last season after suffering a back injury, returns, with Coode probably joining Greg Searle in the coxless pair, which has also qualified for the Sydney Games.
After the trials which took place in Nottingham last week, the rowing coach of Britain, JÃ¼rgen Grobler, said he had "no choice but to include Tim".
"I am delighted with the way the squad has developed over the winter," he added. "I have never seen the standard so high in British rowing."
