Yesterday it was gold, today silver and bronze. On Tuesday in Saipan, our kagu rowers won medals again. On the lake 13e Monument to the fisherman, women won a bronze medal in V6 at a distance of 1500 meters. “Perhaps we had a small technical error on the turn, due to which the others were delayed a little, and it was difficult to catch up. But we don’t blush, third place remains a podium“, details Marcy Maneit, rower.

Still in V6, but in the 500m they won the silver medal behind the Tahitians.
