Double Success for Twins

At the World Rowing Championships in Milan the Evers-Swindell (Caroline and Georgina) sisters repeated their winning performance of 2002 in the double sculls and are firm favourites for gold at Athens in 2004. Caroline: “To go out there last year and win for the first time and set the world record was awesome, [but] to have Kathrin Boron back, who has been winning for the last 10 years, and to race her at these world championships and to beat her is just a wicked feeling. It was a really tough race, but really satisfying.” Joining the Evers-Swindells in qualifying for next year’s Olympics were single sculler Sonia Waddell, the men’s pair and the men’s coxless four.
