British Banter Leading the Way on the Rowing Social Interwebs

Andy Triggs Hodge: Good sport (Photo: B. Kitch)

While the international rowing scene is gearing up for the second World Cup stop in Aiguebelette, France, clearly, some rowing federations are keeping it light in the midst of heavy days of training. And, there's no better example of this than the Brits—as usual, leading the way for rowing banter on the internets. Training camp can be grueling, so, every now and then, it's important to have a little fun at the expense of a double Olympic gold medalist. And, much to the chagrin of Andy Triggs Hodge, his teammates have (finally) noticed a certain similarity between Hodge's flowing locks and those of one of Britain's most famous entrepreneurs...





Look, we're just impressed that Hodgy has found time for all these heroics whilst in the throes of selection. But it hasn't all been fun and games, and from the look of it, the GB squad is shaping up very nicely for World Rowing Cup II. (You can watch the full drone video here.)





Of course, stateside, there are a few who are ready to crank up the banter as well.

And you gotta admit, the U.S. men's eight is looking damn good.



Suffice it to say, we can't wait for summer.

Let the games begin!

    Coach McGee was surprised to hear about this development but his only comment was, "Memememememe!".
