Women’s rowing coxed eight finals at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. Six shells with the best rowing coxed eight teams on earth – total focus a few seconds before the start.
On this photograph: New Zealand, Canada, Great Britain, USA (winner), Romania and the Netherlands teams.
Lagoa is one of the best places in Rio for rowing, this is where the nautical headquarters of Vasco, Botafogo and Flamengo rowing teams are located. Amazing scenery surrounded by hills and some of the most expensive properties in the city – it is not difficult to understand why it was chosen to house the rowing competitions.
