The final stage of the Samsung World Rowing Cup series played out under sunny skies and high temperatures last weekend in Munich, Germany. Over 700 athletes competed in the last regatta before the Olympic Games in July. Great Britain finished on top at all three of the World Rowing Cups this summer, making them the overall winner of the series. Germany and New Zealand finished the series in second and third places, respectively. Great Britain finished second to Germany last year, but had won the series for the four previous years.
