The Ltwt Men's race at Crash-b's was won by Wolfgang Sigl of Austria in
7:52.9, I believe. John Roberts of Harvard was second by a few tenths,
followed by a Canadian and a Swiss named Marco Geir, who posted the fasted
heat time of 7:50. The heats were the fastest I can remember, as it took a
7:59.8 just to make the final. Several of the foreign competitors who had
pulled between 8 flat and 8:01 were quite nonplussed. Hope camp is fun!

In the lightweight men division, the only one I (for obvious reasons)

The heavyweights saw another win for Matthias Sjekowksi (sp?) (7:22?),
followed by Jean Roland from the French gold medal four, a Russian, and
(here I get a bit fuzzy), Xeno Muller from Switz., Jamie Koven from Brown
and US team, Jonathan Moore PACRA and US team, Adam Holland from Harvard,
and someone else (sorry!) who finished somewhere in the top six.
I hope someone else can follow this posting with a more detailed, more
Meanwhile, I will wait for the ice to melt here in Boston so I can get
off the erg.
One interesting CRASH-B lightweight tidbit that you won't see when the results
A couple of the people who narrowly missed making the final did a little
race-off in the back that afternoon in which one of them, Yvan Desliaviere from
France I think (not positive-could have been Koper from Holland) broke the
world record of 7:47. This was observed by CII people and official as far as I
Also: Hats off to John Roberts for chasing Sigl all the way to the wall in the
final. Best American finish in a long time.
