The eyes of the rowing world have been fixed on Sydney for some time now, with the recent Australian Youth Olympic Festival Rowing Regatta setting the stage for the 2013 Sydney International Rowing Regatta next week. Not long ago, we published a video detailing the GB squad's view of the AYOF 2013 experience, and now we've got a slightly different take—the above training and racing video gives us an inside look at the team from South Australia (remember: the Aussies competed as states at the AYOF regatta), with some fancy editing and a hard-hitting soundtrack that is sure to get you pumped up for the next round of international racing Down Under. The SA boys did quite well too, medaling in no less than four events, including golds in the eight and quad.

So far, the SIRR social media crew have done a nice job keeping everyone posted on the developments in Oz. You can follow @SIRR2013 on Twitter, and keep tabs on the hashtags—both #WRCSydney and #SIRR2013 will be in use next week.
Thanks very much to David for sending us the video! Here's to some great racing, and the beginning of a new quadrennium!
