2014 E Sprints 09 HV V8 Ht2 Cornell Attacks Swan EARC Rowing Crew
The last bit of the Heavyweight V8+ Heat#2. My angle with the camera made it so I couldn't judge the finishes well this day and on the video I called Cornell as getting second, and hence the Grand Final spot, but actually Cornell came in third by 0.128 seconds to B.U. Two Mute Swans, an aggressive invasive species, decided to interrupt the V8 Heats. Cornell attacked, but the collision induced ~0.128 seconds of slowness and that was the difference between beating B.U. for the second spot in the Grand Final. Cornell protested, and in the end, the V8 Grand Final was run seven wide, with Cornell in Lane 0.
