Rowing: Double pressure faces Cracknell
Tuesday 01 July 2003
James Cracknell and Matthew Pinsent may rue the day when they agreed to double up in Leander's coxed four for the Prince Philip Challenge Cup at Henley, which starts tomorrow. Their own event, the Silver Goblets for coxless pairs, is a tough call this year, with the Skelin brothers, of Croatia, who beat them in the first round of this year's World Cup, in the other half of the draw.
Ramon di Clemente and Donovan Cech, of South Africa, last's year's finalists in the Goblets against the British pair, are in Cracknell and Pinsent's half. In the Croats' half are a selected American pair. Unfortunately, the British coxless four, world silver medallists last year, have withdrawn from the Stewards'. In their first race the Danish world lightweight champions face the winners of the meeting between Princeton Training Center and Victoria City, Canada, alias the US and Canadian heavyweight national squads. The Canadian lightweight squad is in the other half of the draw.
