Canada brings home three medals — silvers in the women's eight and men's pair, and bronze in the men's eight — from the Samsung World Rowing Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland on May 27. As promised, the women's eight race was competitive to the end, with Canada and the U.S. in a photo finish. The Americans edged out Canada only by .03 of a second to win gold in a time of 5:59.26 (2000m). Canada's silver-medal winning time was 5:59.29, and the Netherlands took bronze in 6:03.20. The eight rowing here is Lesley Thompson-Willie (London, ON), Darcy Marquardt (Richmond, BC), Ashley Brzozowicz (London, ON), Lauren Wilkinson (North Vancouver, BC), Andreanne Morin (Montreal, QC), Rachelle Viinberg (Regina, SK), Krista Guloien (Port Moody, BC), Cristy Nurse (Georgetown, ON) and Natalie Mastracci (Thorold, ON).
