The Australian Olympian, Henley steward and World Rowing commentator Sarah Cook provides her top tips on who to watch in Linz at the 2019 World Rowing Championships

With the 2019 World Rowing Championships being the primary Olympic qualification event, the decisions made by rowing nations as to which boats to target for qualification will be very interesting. The world cups this year were used to trial different crews, combinations and boat classes, but it seems as though the focus will shift from potentially winning world championship medals to ensuring qualification for Tokyo. With only five positions available in the men’s and women’s eights, these are going to be two of the most hotly contested and exciting events to watch at the world championships in Linz.
