Video of the Week: Nick Trojan and Austin Meyer Train for U23 Worlds in the LM2x
Plain and simple, these guys are good. Technique, power application, rhythm–the new-look duo of Harvard's Austin Meyer and former Carlos Dinares disciple (and RR interviewee) Nick Trojan, is looking strong with racing in Trakai, Lithuania coming up next week. The video, shot on the Charles in Boston, includes some footage at race cadence in addition to steady state, and shows both possible lineups, with Trojan stroking at times, Meyer at others. The World Rowing U23 Championships are scheduled to run July 11-15, and we'll e keeping our eye on this entry–along with Andrew Campbell, these two form part of a core group of young U.S. lightweights that has the potential to change the way the world thinks about U.S. lightweight rowing and sculling by the time Rio rolls around. There's no room for big heads in lightweight racing, however, and these guys know there's a long way, and a lot of hard work, between now and 2016, with Lithuania first on the list.
