1. WorldCup München – Who to watch in Munich

Lightweight Men’s Four (LM4-)Is that Eskild Ebbesen sitting in the stroke seat of the Danish boat? If anyone can be called the king of the lightweight four then it is Ebbesen. He is a three-time Olympic Champion in this event, including Bejing.

But in the last year the Danish boat has been suffering. Perhaps this has brought Ebbesen, who last raced at the 2008 Olympics, back into the fold. Does Ebbesen, who is just shy of 39 years old, have what it takes to bring the Danes back to the top of the lightweight four pile?

The Danes will be up against current World Champions Great Britain who have maintained their 2010 lineup.They will also face last year’s world bronze medallists, China.

Do not overlook Germany and Poland. The Germans finished fourth last year and with Lars Wichert now in the boat, the crew will be looking to take the lead and hold on to it. Poland missed last year’s World Rowing Championships but they did finish second at the European Rowing Championships and they are now back to put the heat on the leading crews.
