    Arguably there should be some multiplier (however small) for smaller boats...especially a single scull. The athletes are doing it all on their own. that adds a degree of difficulty not present in larger boats (esp an 8 or 4). Seeing Mahe at 14, with the last two Olympic golds in the single, just underscores the point.

    You could argue it both ways - countries who prioritize larger boats means it's harder to earn a seat in those events.
