Video Of The Week: Aviron France's Lightweight Training Camp in South Africa

Stage Afrique du Sud 2015 - Hommes poids léger by AvironFrance

This week's video comes to us from South Africa, where the French men's lightweight national team recently held a training camp in warmer climes. The video features standouts Jérémie Azou and Stany Delayre in the men's lightweight double, and some excellent sweep rowing from the LM4- (Onfroy TheophileFranck Solforosi, Guillaume Raineau, and Clement Duret) that finished a very close fourth place in Amsterdam, just 0.28 seconds from the podium. For those of you in the audience with a knowledge of French, there are interviews interspersed amongst the rowing shots, and for you coaches out there, the sequence beginning at 4:40 includes a start sequence in the straight four.

And for more from Aviron France, check out their recent video from their heavyweight sweep squad training camp in Temple-sur-Lot here.
