Four Medals for KIT Rowers in France
In addition to numerous French colleges, rowers from Spain, Poland and Serbia also came to the event.
The Karlsruhe men's eight lived up to its role as favorite and won both the 1000m and 500m distances. The men's double sculls were also strong and won the 1000m. On the sprint course they had to admit defeat by a few hundredths to the local heroes from the "Université de Nantes".
The women of the university team were in no way inferior to their male colleagues: In the double four, the women from Karlsruhe were able to secure the much-coveted trophy over the 500m.
Self-confidence for upcoming tasks
The good results and a total of four trophies provide tailwind for the German University Championships, which will be held in Munich at the end of June.
Special thanks go to the Karlsruhe Rowing Club Wiking for the boat material provided and to the University of Nantes for the invitation.
