Plovdiv 2018 Eights Preview

September 7, 2018 by

The 2019 World Rowing Championships are ready to start, and will include a number of top teams and rowers from around the world set to take on the Eights against defending champions Romania and Germany.

Women’s Eight:

Favourite – Romania is the current defending champion, and will be returning with the same line-up as last year. They are the favourites due to their recent win at the European Championships over the British and the Dutch.

Medal Contenders – Canada, New Zealand, and the United States were the top contenders at the World Cup 3, and are the primary challengers to Romania. Canada earned silver in 2017, and will be bringing back most of the same crew, including three additional rowers from their U23 eight that won the last two U23 World championships.

Men’s Eight:

Favourite – Germany are the defending champions for this year, and remained unbeaten for 2018. All nine athletes will be returning from their victory in Sarasota.

Medal Contenders – The Dutch came second at the European Championships, while Great Britain have made the eight the priority after two years with the four as their flagship crew. Canada’s current top athletes are also taking part in the eight for the first time since 2012, and are looking forward to their time in the event. The United States crew has not yet been tested at an international level so far this year, despite their surprise silver win at Sarasota.
