Video of the Week: Training in the Lightweight Pair with Adam Freeman-Pask
This week's video comes to us from Adam Freeman-Pask of Team GB, and showcases some very fine pairs rowing along with some chilled out tunes, reminiscent of a Drew Ginn production. Freeman-Pask (shown in the video above training with Chris Boddy) has consistently placed himself in contention for international medals in both sculling and sweep events over the past several years. 2012 has been Freeman-Pasks most successful year to date, with three straight World Rowing Cup victories (though in an unconventional way–after winning the LM2- in Belgrade with new partner former world champ in the LM4- Paul Mattick, Freeman-Pask won the LM1x in Lucerne, and then finished off the World Cup season in Munich with another win in the LM2-, again with Mattick). At 27 years of age, Freeman-Pask has a lot of strokes yet to take, and will likely be one of the rising stars in the GB lightweight men's squad as Team GB prepares for Rio.
