  • Description

    THE 13TH WOMEN'S EUROPEAN ROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS OPENED IN AMSTERDAM TODY (FRIDAY) WITH REPRESENTATION FROM FOURTEEN COUNTRIES. EARLIER IN THE WEEK THE TEAMS AND SCULLERS WERE OUT FOR PRACTICE ON THE BOSBAAN COURSE.

    THE SOVIET UNION AND EAST GERMANY BOTH SENT POWERFUL TEAMS FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIPS, AND BRITAIN WAS ALSO REPRESENTED, ALTHOUGH WOMEN'S ROWING IN BRITAIN HAS NOT YET ACHIEVED A HIGH STANDARD AND THERE SEEMED LITTLE LIKELIHOOD OF A BRITISH MEDAL.

    THE SOVIET UNION HAD DOMINATED THE CHAMPIONSHIPS SINCE THEIR INCEPTION IN 1954 AND ON FOUR OCCASIONS HAD WON ALL FIVE EVENTS, ALTHOUGH THEY SEEMED UNLIKELY TO REPEAT THIS FEAT THIS YEAR.

    PRACTICE HEATS WERE HELD ON THE BOSBAAN YESTERDAY (THURSDAY).
