Video Of The Week: 'You Only YOLO Once,' with the Australian LM4x

This week's video comes to us from Down Under, and features the 2013 Aussie LM4x training on the Nepean River in New South Wales. The crew, coached by none other than Tim McLaren, as well as Rick Van Hooydonk (of Sydney University Boat Club), was made up of Perry Ward, Ed De Carvalho, Adam Kachyckyj, and James Wilson, and performed well on the international stage, placing fifth overall in Chungju—Perry Ward returned to senior worlds in Amsterdam this year, placing fifth in the LM1x. There's a little bit of history on their training and preparation via a blog that they kept during the campaign that you can read here, as well as via their Facebook page. And, it's a nicely edited video with a soundtrack that is well suited to the long hours of winter training (we're here to offer you in-depth as well as multipurpose, you see).
