Sinković Brothers win Silver in New Discipline

Total Croatia News

The brothers switched rowing disciplines after being the best in all competitions.

After achieving the best time in semi-finals at the world championship in their group, Martin and Valent Sinković placed second today and won a world silver, Večernji List reported on September 30, 2017.

The race was expected to be dominated by the Italians, New Zealanders and Croatians, which was the case. Sinković brothers started great and had the advantage in the first 500-metre section, but at the end of the second, the lead was taken by the New Zealand pair. Only briefly as the Sinković brothers pushed to a higher gear and led by 2 seconds. A medal was not in question, but it was not to be golden as the Italians, known for their superior finish, were 34 hundredths of a second faster.

In any case, the Sinković brothers performed great, especially since they changed disciplines. After winning everything they could in double sculls, the brothers threw out one oar and switched to coxless pair, and in their first championship won a world silver.
