Synek and Knapkova Sacrifice Munich to the Olympic Preparation

Neither of the the Czech Republic’s top single scullers is due to compete at the Rowing World Cup in Munich this weekend. Women’s 2011 world champion, Mirka Knapková, and the holder of men’s 2010 world title, Ondřej Synek, are both staying home with a plan to focus on training for the Olympic regatta.

The decision of the nation’s best rowers has been reported in a Czech News Agency (ČTK) news piece quoted in Czech media outlets on 14 June.

Obviously unaware of the absence of New Zealand’s Mahé Drysdale due to a traffic accident injury, the text takes for granted that Synek is still likely to retain his leadership in the overall classification of the World Cup. Yet now, the game is open and Great Britain’s Alan Campbell will be the front-runner for the total World Cup victory.
