This morning we watched the qualifying heats for the men’s and women’s single sculls, men’s and women’s double sculls, lightweight men’s and women’s double sculls.
Tomorrow the semi-finals will be held and on Sunday morning the finals will determine who will represent the United States in Rio this summer. It was the first time we’d ever seen any live Olympic events.
Arriving, we passed the staging area where the boats were being waxed
We also watched some “locals”, none of whom were paying any attention to the races.
