Heat sheets and results (available April 9, 2012, after Athletes Meeting)
The U.S. Non-Qualified Olympic Small Boat Trials take place this week in Chula Vista, California. A select few of our Open Sculling Program athletes have been preparing for this event in Long Beach since January. Training has been tough, but every day our athletes have shown dedication and progress towards meeting their goals.
Competing in trials will be the toughest challenge many of these athletes have faced. But winning here means overcoming just one more hurdle to representing the United States at the Olympic Games in London.
This week’s winners of the men’s double sculls and women’s double sculls trials earn the chance to race at the Lucerne Qualification Regatta in May.
Open Sculling Program head coach Reilly Dampeer says, “I am confident in the hard work our athletes have put in, which of course started years ago. We can look forward to aggressive racing this week.”
Go get ’em, PBC!
