Lucerne World Cup

 PeteReedCasual I am sure there is not a single sportsman in the world that enjoys losing. There are probably only a handful who don’t mind losing. For me, the toughest thing to take is the feeling that you were not good enough or you under-performed.

 This disappointing and irritating feeling has stayed with me this last week since our defeat in Lucerne. At this second World Cup, we raced without our selected stroke-man (Andrew Triggs Hodge) and bow-man (Tom James).

The World Cup Season

9 people rate this

 Peter - New ImageIt is difficult to say whether this year has flown by or not. On the one hand, the weeks and months of the tough winter training period dragged on and on like never before with the Olympic goal like a bull’s-eye target too distant to make out. On the other hand, we are now right in the middle of the World Cup season just 10 weeks before the Olympic final in August.

 

The summer racing season is here. Each year there are 3 World Cup regattas in Europe where the majority of the countries enter their boats for a chance to assess themselves against the opposition and to get ready for the main event of the year. For 3 out of every 4 years, this main event is the World Championships in September, but every 4th year it is the big one: The Olympic Games.
