Final tune-up preparations for next weekend’s Tokyo Olympic qualification regatta in Lucerne brought two high-caliber crews to Linz/Ottensheim this week: the US M4x and the Austrian M4-.
The action shots were taken during some pretty exciting sparring activity this past week.
Both crews face hard racing in Switzerland but both appear ready to rise to the occasion. Good luck to all of you gentlemen:
