John van der Biz to review
Coxless Four with John van der Biju did not make it to the finals immediately. They finished third and had to finish in the top two to qualify immediately. Race for reuse on Sunday 25th July at 6.10am.
Australia was at its peak in the heat. After 500 meters there was already a big gap with Australia, but the other boats were still close to each other. The Netherlands was fourth after 500 meters.
After half (1,000 meters), the Australians actually came out, but the battle for second place was still tough between Romania, the United States and the Netherlands. South Africa was behind the Netherlands.
The United States also ran after 1,500 meters, with the Netherlands only in third place in battle with Romania. The Netherlands won that battle, but not enough for the third final.
