Stayin' Alive at Olympic Trials: Close and Goff Advance to Semi Finals

The final spots for tomorrow morning’s scheduled Non-Qualified Olympic Trial semifinals were decided this afternoon on Lower Otay Reservoir.

In three events, repechages were run in the women’s single sculls, the lightweight men’s double and the men’s double sculls.

Two flights of men’s double sculls began with Oklahoma City’s entry of Pat Close and Max Goff advancing to the semi finals with a time of 7:12.798. Close and Goff battled through rough evening conditions to finish ahead of second place California Rowing Club and third place Vesper Boat Club.
