Steve Wins at World Masters

Funniest part is at the end when Rachel Chapman (in pink) finds out the result of this (over sixties) singles race at the World Masters. I'm sculling at about 33 and put in a couple of strokes at 36 when I perceive a threat from the Brasilian, Gilberto Gerhadt, (away to my right and out of shot - you can see his wake). He sculled in the Montreal Olympics in 1976 so I had been watching him throughout the race. The Norwegian, ěyvin Br°ymer, on my left just beat him into third place but the race between the two of them meant I had to press on and work all the way to the finish.

If you are interested to know how I did this, given that I am only 65kg, then you need to read my book, "HOW TO WIN - The Sports Competitor's Guide to Success" that is now available from Amazon. And yes I did follow my own advice.
