Day 2 Results at the 2017 World Rowing Championships

“It was really exciting coming down the course and hearing the grandstands,” three time Olympian Meghan Kalmoe said. “That was maybe the first heat in a world championships that I could actually hear the grandstands, and it was pretty awesome.”

That was just after she and pair partner Tracy Eisser won their heat sending them directly to the finals.

They were one of seven US crews to begin competition in their events on Monday, including Ellen Tomek and Meghan O’Leary, who won their heat in the women’s double to advance to the semifinal.

The rest of the US crews, including the lightweight men’s and women’s quads, the women’s four, the women’s quad, the men’s double, and single sculler Felice Mueller, would have to race in the reps to move on.

Single sculler Michael Clougher won his rep to move on to the quarter finals.
