6th at the Olympics….

At the moment I am not the happiest person but I am happy I was in the Olympic Final. We technically couldn’t row as well as we did in the Semi Final and so we did not have the same second 1000m as we hoped for.

Oh well, I am going to enjoy the rest of my stay now and who knows maybe I’ll get a shot at a Medal at an Olympics again. Thank you all for your support and kind words.

Going for the finals!

Schedule Sunday August 17

YES! We made it to the final!

We had a really good second 1000m today which secured us a spot in the Final.

I am very happy to be in the Olympic Final. It’s just unbelievable! Now I am enjoying this moment and will soon start thinkig about the Final which will be a whole new race! I am pumped!

Thanks to everyone who cheered me on and wished me luck! Thank you! We will do everything we can to be on top of the podium on Sunday.
