VOTW: GB Men's Lightweight Double, 'Catch' Preview
"CATCH" (The Pilot) from Richard Truter on Vimeo.
This week's video is a preview of what looks to be a fantastic series on the selection for the GB LM2x during the final year of the Olympic cycle, leading up to the London Games. The well known, and very well established duo of Mark Hunter and Zach Purchase may face some challenges unknown to the rowing outsider, as a year's hiatus from the squad following Beijing, as well as illnesses have kept the two from taking on the full training and racing schedule they would otherwise have tackled, and other talented members of what is an extremely deep GB squad have made strong cases to be considered for the top lightweight event.
The series will be called 'Catch,' and includes shots of both training and racing, as well as candid interviews with the athletes, as this preview shows.
As we discussed in our last article, it was announced last week that Mark Hunter and Zach Purchase will be reunited to defend their title as reigning world champions in the LM2x just over a month from now in Bled.
