U23 Double Wraps Up at World Championships

Racing finished today at the U23 World Championships in Varese, Italy. The men's double of Erik Frid and Walter Banfield, coached by Steve Dani finished second in the C final for 14th place out of 20 total crews entered in the event. The duo put together one of their strongest races in the final, running from fourth place at the 500m mark of the race to holding first place with 500m to go. Unfortunately the crew could not sustain the strong sprint of the Latvians and would take home second place. Overall the US would earn five medals at the championships, including a gold in the women's eight, four and the men's lightweight single, silver in the women's pair and bronze in the men's eight. Full results for the world championships can be found
