Rowing World Cup - 2008 - Poznan Highlights
Highlights of the third and final Rowing World Cup regatta from Poznan, Poland. Great Britain hope to retain the World Cup, which they won for the first time last year, but the crews also use the event to fine-tune their preparations for the Olympics, now just weeks away. Britain's flagship crew, the coxless four, aim for a third consecutive gold in Beijing, but have had a injury-plagued season so far. However, they can take courage from 2004 when they clinched the Olympic title despite a late injury that ruled out Alex Partridge just weeks before the Athens Games. Partridge has a chance to make up for that disappointment as he competes here and in Beijing. Commentary from Garry Herbert and Dan Topolski.
