|Results from H1 of the M2x (via @SinkovicBros)|
The second World Rowing Cup of the season is underway in Varese, Italy, and there are a couple international athletes who are winning both on and off the water. After the racing today, which saw both Mahe Drysdale and the Sinkovic Brothers progress to the A/B semifinals, three of the world's best scullers took to Twitter, with Drysdale challenging Martin and Valent Sinkovic to come race in the single. And the results? Fantastic.
.@MaheDrysdale @fatsculler we wouldn't want to cause you too much pressure considering your age ;) Damir Martin is waiting for you :D— Sinkovic Brothers (@SinkovicBros) June 19, 2015
@SinkovicBros @fatsculler you cheeky kids! If you don't come to me I might have to retire to the double after Rio! #OldDogNewTricks— Mahe Drysdale (@MaheDrysdale) June 19, 2015
@MaheDrysdale @fatsculler challenge accepted! You and Synek in double ;) we heard it was planned - sad it's not realised!— Sinkovic Brothers (@SinkovicBros) June 19, 2015
