#FBF: In Case You Missed It, The French Lightweights Killed It At Worlds

While most of the headlines have gone to the teams atop the medal table, the French lightweights are certainly deserving of recognition, medaling in every event that they entered, including gold for top crew Jérémie Azou and Stany Delayre in the lightweight men's double. They earned a second gold medal in the lightweight quad, silvers in the LM2- and LM8+, and a fifth medal (a bronze) in the stacked lightweight men's four field.

More to come on the 2015 World Rowing Championships in the coming days here on RR, as we reflect on the results and what they mean for the coming season, and Olympic year. In the meantime, you can read recaps of the men's and women's events on Daniel Spring's blog by following the links above, and see how our 2015 worlds picks and predictions performed by comparing them to the official results. (All in all, we're pretty happy with them.)

Our editor did a decent job for ROWING Magazine as well—in his estimation, at least. (Kidding!)
