It was a golden day for Team Canada on the second day of World Rowing Cup action in Poznan, Poland. Jill Moffatt (Bethany, ON) executed a perfect race strategy in the Women’s Lightweight Single A Final, to take home the gold with a time of 8:16.43. China’s Mengyin Cheng finished in silver position (8:17.35) and Australia’s Georgia Nesbitt (8:18.76) took home the bronze. This will be Moffatt’s first World Cup medal, previously finishing 5th at World Cup 3 and World Championships in 2018.

I knew it would be a long race, and we had this morning’s race as well,” said Moffatt. “It’s a headwind out there. But our team has put in a lot of work in over the winter and I knew I could handle a race of any length. I was at the back of the pack and was thinking “don’t let them get too far”. I did what worked for me.

Jeremy Hall (St. Paul, AB) captured the silver medal in the PR2 Men’s Single event, continually closing the gap on World Champion Corne De Koning from the Netherlands. This is the second silver medal for Hall, placing 2nd at the 2018 World Championships in Plovdiv.

Because of the conditions, I knew today was going to be a little bit harder and slower than yesterday. Yesterday I left a little bit in the tank at the end of the race so today I just wanted to lay it all out there.

Six more Canadian crews have earned their way to the A Finals tomorrow including Conlin McCabe (Brockville, ON) and Kai Langerfeld (Vancouver, BC) in the Men’s Pair. The Men’s Lightweight Double crew, Maxwell Lattimer (Delta, BC) and Patrick Keane (Victoria, BC) locked down their spot along with Hillary Janssens (Cloverdale, BC) and Sydney Payne (Toronto, ON) in the Women’s Pair. Carling Zeeman (Cambridge, ON) will also line up in the Women’s Single A Final.

Both Canadian big boats have qualified for the A Final tomorrow. The Men’s Eight won their repechage today and the Women’s Eight finished 3rd to secure their spot in the big boat showdown.
