Unfortunately, our hardest effort wasn't enough today. We wouldn't have changed anything about our race... in fact we are thrilled with our progress. But we missed out on qualifying for the B-final by 1 spot. (We were 19th.) Since we've been working solely towards our Making The B-Final goal for two months since we returned from Europe, we are disappointed.
As for the rest of the US team, Maggie made it through to the 1000m k1 B-final, Morgan House is in the C final for the k1 1000m, and Yariel Rodriugez, our badass canoeist, made the B-final for the c1 1000m.
The rest of us get to focus on the 200m distances. We still have lots of racing to do this weekend!
