Kim Crow races in World Rowing Cup
In one month's time the Samsung World Rowing Cup I will be under way in Penrith.
Double Olympic medal winner from the London Games, Kim Crow, has been confirmed to race in the women's single sculls on her home waters at the Regatta Centre.
Crow was one of the first London Olympians from Australia to commit to continuing elite level rowing and so has been back in training since about one month after the Olympics.
Also continuing on from London are five members of the Australian women's eight including coxswain Lizzy Partick.
They will form the base of the World Cup eight which has already shown promising speed during time trials.
The US is sending a team of 22 athletes.
Leading up to the Samsung World Rowing Cup is a week-long rowing festival which will feature events including the Australian Open Rowing Championships, the Australian Open Schools Championships and the King's and Queen's Cup interstate regatta.
The festival will see about 2000 competitors and more than 600 races, making it the biggest rowing event in the Asia Pacific region in recent years.
Next week's program: Regatta Centre, March 1-3, Australian Canoeing Sprint Grand Prix 3
