- And another Australian link from Michael Wilson: No further punishment for crews with light boats (SpCent, 22nd Dec).
- Michael Wilson has sent me some links on Australian/Olympic rowing: Olympic hopefuls all in a row (Sydney Morning Herald, 18th); Second disqualification in three days of rowing trials (SportCentral, 19th); Harsh reality likely to sink Oarsome Foursome's Disney ending (SMH, 21st); Oarsome Foursome door ajar some (SpC, 21st); Six to front commission (SpC, 21st); and a good index of rowing stories in the Sydney Morning Herald, going back a few months.
- And from last week, a fuller report on Scullers weigh in too light (Melbourne Age, Australia).
- From Australia, news that "Former Olympic hope might be out of Olympic rowing team" (ABC News).
- In today's Telegraph, Tim Foster's regular diary: Fittest falter in altitude ordeal.
- It's that time of year again. Writing on the Cambridge trial eights (yesterday) we have Geoffrey Page (Telegraph) saying Promptings of Glassman prove a formidable asset, and Mike Rosewell (Times) stating Cambridge engineer smooth passage.
- And on the subject of the Oxford trial eights the day before, Geoffrey calls it Rough and tumble in Oxford crews' dead heat, and Mike has a snippet on Dark Blue crews stick together.
- LINK REPAIRED. Well, it's the British list-mania time of year again, and also time for various awards. As usual in the UK, our rowing hero Steve Redgrave will be blatantly overlooked for the sporting achievement trophies, although Brian Viner in the Independent today does his best to make up for it, bless him.
- Adding further to the list of rowers' finances being scrutinised by the Telegraph, Pair of rowers learn a new way of going for gold in yesterday's Cash Clinic, about the owner of Rock The Boat and her husband (UK).
- A fantastic article I missed a couple of Saturdays ago, Masterstrokes of a centurion: the Steve Redgrave interview, by Andrew Longmore, in the Independent. OK so perhaps they ought to talk to a few other rowers from time to time, but these in-depth interviewers get some fascinating insights into one of the most competitive brains in rowing. The Indy is now (yippee!) keeping more of its articles online for a reasonable amount of time.
- From yesterday's papers, about the British Erg Champs, brief snippet in the Telegraph, and in the Times Mike Rosewell writes Bishop eclipses her rival to seize record.
- In the Telegraph two days ago, My School Sport: Steve Redgrave. And Redgrave backs rowing project in state schools on the launch of Project Oarsome by the ARA.
- Meanwhile the Times has Project Oarsome takes to the water, Mike Rosewell.
- In the Brown Alumni Magazine, "Rivals" an excellent article by Robert A. Reichley, on the colliding aims of two famous Brown alumni, Xeno Mueller and Jamie Koven (USA).
- In the Daily Telegraph today, Museum building is a prize exhibit, about the River and Rowing Museum. Good pictures too in the Independent, but not online
- In today's Telegraph (UK), Rowing trophy rescued by student's night of passion.
- From yesterday's Financial Times online, (UK) River and Rowing Museum wins award (by Phil Halliday) - the Henley Museum is Museum of the Year 1999 for the UK. The Guardian's rowing correspondent is Chris Dodd, also a curator at the magazine, but they could only manage to allow a handful of words about it...
