Four Junior Australian crews will contest A-Finals in Rio de Janeiro today (Saturday). The Junior Men's Single Scull, the Junior Women's Double Scull, the Junior Men's Coxed Four and the Junior Women's Eight will all be competing for medals in A-Finals in Brazil at the World Rowing Junior Championships, while the Junior Women's and Men's Fours will compete in B-Finals.
On Friday, just three crews competed for Australia, with Adam Bakker first up in the Junior Men's Single. The young Queenslander raced in the semi-final of his boat class and finished in second to secure a place in today's A-Final. Following, Bakker, Georgia Wheeler and Bridget Badenoch competed in the semi-final of the Junior Women's Double and also finished second and booked a place in the A-Finals today.
Meanwhile, the Junior Men's Four of Tom Franey, Angus Morrison, Tom Davidson and Callum Chisholm finished sixth in their semi-final and will thus compete in the B-Final of their boat class.
With all racing scheduled to be completed on Saturday, due to predicted adverse weather conditions for Sunday, supporters can follow all the action via World Rowing's website and via our social media channels.
