Notes: Women’s eights one to watch at Head of the Charles

If you missed the Olympic women’s final in the eights, they’re having a reprise on Sunday with all three medalists — the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands — taking the line in the championship event.

They’ll be taking on a London RC entry that includes medalists from Great Britain and New Zealand as well as a Great 8 of scullers that feature singles medalists Miroslava Knapkova of the Czech Republic, Fie Erichsen of Denmark, and Kim Crow of Australia, as well as Poland’s Julia Michalska and Germany’s Annekatrin Thiele, who made the podium in the double and quad, plus US representative Gevvie Stone, who’ll be gunning for her fourth singles title on Saturday afternoon.
