“Brocky” is a passionate rowing coach but also a trustworthy caregiver for the athletes. Some of them, he has known for years and celebrated his biggest success with, for example Tim Ole Naske or Henrik Runge. Due to his promotion to National Coach two and a half years ago, the 44-year-old father has entered the circle of those who have good chances of being a coach at the Olympics. But according to experience, only two of the three coaches are allowed to go to Tokyo which means that one has to stay home. Who will win the race?
15 German scullers, 3 boat classes and only 7 seats available. The young scullers have a long and hard way ahead of them. Who will make it into which boat and fulfill his dream of the Olympic Games?
Marcus Schwarzrock, Dirk Brockmann and Karsten Timm don’t have an easy job. They have to decide who will be in which boat at the end. And they also pursue their own goals.
The rowing soul is delighted, because the athletes like to rowing most with their boats on glassy water and sunny weather. But also a training camp has its rules.
Oliver Zeidler, Stephan Krüger, Tim Ole Naske – those are three contenders for the seat in the single scull. Each of them has his very own strengths. In Erba they practice head-to-head.
In the end the coaches select the rowers for the boats. The double scull could become highly competitive. Only the most successful boat of the last years causes some worries.
The ergometer test is the starting point of the selection and well known in the world of rowing: 2,000 meters – human vs. machine.
More than just a final rehearsal for the German Championship in Cologne: the single scull races in Hamburg-Allermöhe.
The German Championships are not just about the title. Already in the quarter-finals, there is a hard fight for a place among the first twelve. Not everyone achieves this goal.
In the finale of the German Small Boat Championships it comes to the final decision. But Oliver Zeidler leaves no doubt that there can be only one champion.
