Flips happen at all levels of rowing and this year's World Championships proved it even happens at the top of the sport. Rajko Hrvat of Slovenia flipped in his quarterfinal race of the LM1x after leading for the first 1500 meters. He was quickly picked up by the chase boat and allowed to advance to the C/D semifinals out fears of gators in the water. He would go on to win the C Final.
