  • Description

    SKILL AND HARD WORK BY COMPETITORS GAVE SPECTATORS A DAY TO REMEMBER AT THE EUROPEAN ROWING CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS DAY HELD AT DUISBERG, WEST GERMANY, TODAY (SUNDAY).

    IN THE COXED FOURS THE GERMANS WERE THE FIRST TO SHOW AHEAD. THE RUSSIANS AND THE YUGOSLAVS WENT WITH THEM, BUT THE RUSSIANS DREW AHEAD WITH SLOWER, MORE POWERFUL STROKES. THERE WAS NO HOLDING THE RUSSIAN TEAM DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE COURSE AND THEY WERE COMFORTABLE WINNERS.

    THE AUSTRIAN COUPLE. LOSERT AND EDNER, STARTED OFF THE COXLESS PAIRS AT A GREAT RATE. BUT AT THE 1,500 MARK, THEY COULDN'T MAINTAIN THE PACE AND HAD TO GIVE BEST TO THE DANES, BOYE AND CHRISTIANSEN, WHO FINISHED STRONGLY.

    THIS YEAR'S HENLEY WINNERS OF THE DOUBLE SCULLS, THE SWISS PAIR, BUERGIN AND STUDACH, CONFIRMED THEIR SUPERIORITY WHEN THEY OUT-ROWED AUSTRIA, RUSSIA AND GERMANY IN A DING-DONG BATTLE DOWN THE COURSE.

    THE SURPRISE OF THE CHAMPIONSHIPS CAME WITH THE VICTORY OF RATZEBURG IN THE EIGHTS. THEY STRUGGLED TO WIN THE REPECHAGE ON FRIDAY, SO THEIR BATTLE AGAINST A RUSSIAN CREW DOWN THE COURSE WITH ITALY AND THE UNITED STATES CLOSE BEHIND WAS NOT EXPECTED. ONLY IN THE LAST FEW YARDS HOWEVER DID THE GERMAN CREW SNATCH A POPULAR WIN.
