South Waikato News - - NEWS -

There are 12 row­ers in the ASM1x class. The favourite is Tom Ag­ger of Great Bri­tain. Ti­rau’s Danny McBride will race in one of two heats on Mon­day af­ter­noon from 2.05pm. If he does not qual­ify di­rectly for the fi­nal then he will race in the repecharge. There are two repecharge races from 2.15pm Tues­day. These will de­cide who will join the heat win­ners in the six-strong A fi­nal, and who will race in the B fi­nal. The fi­nals will be held on Thurs­day with the B fi­nal at 2.33pm and the A fi­nal for the medals at 3.10pm. The ASM1x class is for para­plegic ath­letes who row sin­gle scull boats. A strap across each rower’s chest en­sures ath­letes use their arms and shoul­ders only.
