STAGING Aggar defends title. GB women's eight and light four take bronzes - British Rowing

Aggar defends title. GB women’s eight and light four take bronzes

Tom Aggar extended his unbeaten run to take the World title for a fourth time in the arms-only single scull and the women’s eight celebrated crew member Katie Solesbury‘s birthday to raise their game and take a bronze.

[newsimage=0]But the lightweight men’s four lost their World crown when they took bronze and overnight sickness for Marcus Bateman showed when the 2010 world silver medallists came home sixth in their men’s double scull final.


So Slovenia’s  Lake Bled was the scene of another day of contrasting fortunes for the GB Rowing Team.

“The women’s eight were exceptional today and raised their game to win a bronze.  We also celebrated Tom Aggar‘s gold and the maintenance of his remarkable unbeaten record since 2007. Sadly, we had a bit of illness in the men’s double which affected their performance but we have also qualified more boats into tomorrow’s final and have taken four Olympic class medals from our six shots so far”, said GB Rowing Team Performance Director today.

Anna Watkins and Katherine Grainger, in the women’s double scull, Pete Reed and Andrew Triggs Hodge, in the men’s pair and single sculler Alan Campbell all won their semi-finals today and race finals tomorrow. 

Britain will also feature in the lightweight women’s quadruple scull final and in through Nick Beighton and Sam Scowen in the mixed adaptive double scull final.

There are also semi-finals of the women’s single, both lightweight double sculls – featuring Olympic champions Mark [newsimage=1]Hunter and Zac Purchase as well as Sophie Hosking and Hester Goodsell – and the mixed adaptive coxed four. 

The long wait will also be over for Alex Gregory, Ric Egington, Matt Langridge and Tom James since they won their heat last Sunday. They contest their semi, too, with a final on Sunday.

Finally the British men’s quadruple scull will seek to put today’s fourth-placed semi-final finish behind them and win the boat an Olympic qualifying place by finishing fifth or better in their B final tomorrow.

=============================== ===============================

Tom Aggar was the first GB Rowing Team finalist today. He set a marker by taking gold in 4:58.01.

Aggar was pushed hard by the Russian Alexey Chuvashev. At the halfway point the Londoner only had a few feet advantage.

[newsimage=2]At that point he said he “had faith in the training I’ve done”.  Gradually he pulled out to a length lead and went on to win.

“Yes that was a fairly close race. Obviously the rest of the guys are improving every year and with the Paralympics next year everyone’s going to get hotter again. It was a tough race but I’m pleased to come out on top.

“Asked about being so laid back and seemingly unexcited by his win he said:  “I love it. It’s a fantastic atmosphere both and the start and obviously down here at the medal area.  That makes up for the fact that we finish half-way”.

At the opposite end of the programme the GB women’s eight sprung the nicest surprise of the day by taking bronze, helping crew member Katie Solesbury celebrate her birthday in style. 

At halfway they were fifth but, urged on by cox Caroline O’Connor, they found the strength to come back first at the Dutch and then the Romanians in the final 300m to win their medal and give a significant boost to the whole team.

Natasha Page said:  “It’s really hard to remember what was happening in the race. I recall Caroline [O’Connor – the cox] calling that we were half a seat off bronze and I remember thinking no way, no way am I going to give up.

“It’s my best ever row. I’ve never won a senior medal before.  I’ve won them at world junior and world U23 level but never at senior level. This is just so special with these guys”.

Jess Eddie said:  “I think we’ve had a lot more trust and confidence in each other in the crew this time round.  We’ve got it back and it makes a huge difference”.

Katie Solesbury added: “Yes, it’s fantastic. It’s brilliant. Now I’m really looking forward to next year.

Louisa Reeve:  “Fantastic!  It’s been a good year and this will set us up so well for next year.”

Jo Cook said: “We’d done some fast times in training and that is important because it is positive proof rather than just in our heads. During the race we expected the whole field to be side by side all the way down the course and I just kept saying to myself that every stroke counts.  There are huge expectations in the team – we are all going for gold and we really do that every day in training”.

“Before we went out today I kept saying ‘make it happen, make it happen’ and it did”, said Thornley.  “It’s fantastic, it feels so good”.

[newsimage=3]By contrast Marcus Bateman and Matt Wells were sixth in their final of the men’s double. Bateman was ill in the night before the race and the 2010 World sliver medallists looked under par.  Whilst not using it as an excuse the GB double  were off the pace from the 1000m onwards and limped home rather than unleashing their customary sprint.

I got woken in the night by Marcus being sick”, said Wells. “I only got three hours sleep and he got much less, there was no fuel left in him. I went out this morning to train with the spare and we weren’t sure if we could race but we made the decision as a team.

“For two fifths of the race, we were really there and even to finish five seconds off the bronze when not totally fit is impressive. We were missing half the boat and for the last 500m it was all me. It would have been incredible if we could have beaten one of the other crews.  I think there are seven boats that can win gold next year.”

World Champions Richard Chambers, Chris Bartley, Paul
Mattick and Rob Williams were in the midst of a six-boat
chase at 500m gone in their final today.  Nothing much
separated the crews in this tight final.

By halfway they were eight tenths of a second down on the leaders Italy with Australia in second and China third.  In the third 500m Australia moved into the lead and the GB boat moved up to third, passing the Chinese.  If the split timings were correct GB had left themselves too much to do in the final 500m. They were two seconds adrift with Australia leading. 

A massive sprint saw GB beat the Danes to bronze but they could not catch the Italians in silver nor Australia in gold.

Chris Bartley said:  “We knew everyone else would go out hard. We’ve been in that situation before but today we just couldn’t bring it back.

Rob Williams said: “Ours is such a hard event. We want to win but I don’t think you can take it for granted so if you get a medal you should be happy with it. But we want to go better next time”.

Paul Mattick added:  “I’m very proud. This crew’s been very good over the past two years. We’ve won 18 out of 22 and we’ve been in the top three the rest of the  time.  We’ll go on next time.

Richard Chambers said:  “You know we’re disappointed that we’re not world champions again but next  year’s the big one”.

Pete Reed and Andrew Triggs Hodge, reigning Olympic champions in the men’s four and twice world silver medallists in the men’s pair, headed an almost perfect racing chevron in the semis of the men’s pair today through the first 800m.

Canada, the Beijing Olympic silver medallists, and Germany were tracking them and the USA were in fourth.

The boats came down the shimmering surface of the lake towards the British supporters who could see that “their” men had clearwater over Scott Frandsen and Dave Calder of Canada by 1200m. These two crews, then, were definitely going to qualify. Germany launched an attack on the Canadians in the final 200m but to no avail.  The USA took fourth.

Reed and Hodge have now set up a season’s finale clash with reigning world champions New Zealand who won the other heat.  The GB boat is also now qualified for London.

“Our plan is to be challenging for a top place and Olympic qualification is part of that. If we do our job properly it should be a “given”. But we’re still happy to have qualified the boat. It’s a great position for us.

“We’re very excited about the Olympic Games. but the job is now the Kiwis and the final and I think we showed that our last two months have made a huge difference to our racing. I’m always very wary of comparing times from semis.

“Pete and I are really, really positive about what we are doing and I’m sure we can step on and produce one of our best races tomorrow and that’s all we can do.

“No-one’s going to lie down, no one’s going to give it to anyone else. Bring on the fight”.

Reed added: “I’m really pleased to qualify the pair for the Games. Our very biggest job here is now done formally.  That semi was very tactical from all the crews and we handled the situation with real confidence. I can’t wait to show what we can do in the final.  I’m sure all the crews will step up but we’re going for gold”.

Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins were in the lead of their women’s double scull almost form the first stroke. The reigning world champions were keeping an eye on New Zealand in second and the Czech Republic, out in lane 1, in third.

By halfway the British combination were over three seconds – virtually two lengths – in the lead over Fiona Paterson and  and Anna Reymer.  China and Irelands appeared to be dropping off the pack with the Czechs still in third and Serbia fourth.

Grainger and Watkins lowered their stroke rate and settled in for the row to the line to win in 6:59.72 and book their boat’s slot at the Olympic Games next year.

Russia led the pack as the first semi-final of the day came down the course in the men’s quadruple scull.

Britain has not won a men’s single scull medal at the Olympic Games since 1928. Alan Campbell would dearly love to change that. Today he was racing in the semi-finals of the World Championships. A top three placing today would not only put Campbell into the final but also qualify a slot for this GB boat in the Olympic Games next year.

In the opening 500m Campbell took the lead from the mercurial Marcel Hacker of Germany and the wily Ondrej Synek of  the Czech Republic.

Synek moved up to second at halfway with Campbell still leading and Cuba in fourth.  In the third 500m Synek and Hacker closed in on Campbell but the Coleraine 2010 World bronze medallist still had a second or so over the rest.

With 200m to go all three men looked about, decided they were through and dropped off the rate to cruise across the line.  A win for Campbell in 6:50.00, Synek second and Hacker third.

Alan Campbell:  “My plan today was to get in front and deliver the race.  I wasn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination. I didn’t know what was going to come from Ondrej [Synek] and Marcel [Hacker] in the second. But it’s job done and now into the final. So I’m pretty pleased”.

Bill Lucas, Sam Townsend, Stephen Rowbotham and Tom Solesbury were in contention in the early phases but still lying outside the top three qualifying slots at halfway. Only three seconds separated the field, though, from first to sixth.

So there was still all to play for at halfway even if a difficult task with a second to make up on the Poles who were then holding third place. The Croatians had moved into the lead with Russia second and the USA behind GB.

As the crews battled through the last 400m the British quartet were part of a four-boat race to the  line and missed out by just four tenths of a second. They now contest a B Final.  Croatia, Russia and Poland progressed in that order.

Kat Copeland and Adam Freeman Pask also brought their world championships campaigns to a close here in fifth and sixth places respectively in their lightweight women’s and men’s single scull finals. Copeland, the World U23 champion, was in third at 500m gone but dropped back to fifth at the end.  Freeman Pask also started well but could not keep up the pace in the final stages.
