The Finalists In The Diamonds
For the first time in the history of The Diamond Challenge Sculls, a Swede, Lassi Karonen (Brudpiga Roddklubb), will be in the final of this event. Karonen (see picture) will meet the 2009 holder of the Diamonds, Mahe Drysdale (West End Rowing Club) of New Zealand. Drysdale, who is a four-time world champion in the single, will of course be a hard nut to crack for the 34-year old Swede, but everything can happen during a final at Henley.
