Australian Rowers progress in hot conditions

It was a sizzling start to competition for Australia’s scullers today with the Women’s Double Sculls and Men’s and Women’s Quadruple Sculls all hitting the water at the Sea Forest Waterway.

Hot conditions in Tokyo saw the Women’s Double Sculls progress to the semi-finals and the Men’s Quadruple Sculls secure a spot in Tuesday’s final, while the Women’s Quadruple Sculls finished fourth in their heat and will now contest the repechage.  

Watched by IOC Vice President, and AOC President, John Coates and Australian rowing legend James Tomkins, the Women’s Double Sculls opened Australia’s showing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
