This is the 21st gold medal from the World Cup in Martin and Valent’s career.

Martin and Valent Sinkovich finished first in the A Doubles final at the 2nd World Cup Rowing Regatta in Poznan.

Sinkovic dominated the entire race, entering the finish line at a time of 6:12:53 and winning the gold medal.

The silver medal was won by the Polish crew at 6: 16.04, but the third place in the photo finish went to Australians and Dutch at the same time at 6: 18.10.

“I did another race well. To be honest, we were very happy with how we rowed all three races and were much better than Belgrade at the first World Cup. I think there is still room for improvement. We will continue to train and work towards the final regatta of the World Cup in Lucerne, “Martin Sinkovich said.

“The most important thing is the progress we have made back in pairs. All the races are getting better and we can’t wait for the rest of the season, especially the preparations in Perucha to improve our form and technique, and of course. It’s the European and World Championships, “said Valent Sinkovich.

After his first World Cup victory in Belgrade and today’s victory, the Sinkovic brothers now have 21 gold medals in the World Cup.

Six years have passed since Sinkovic won the Olympic gold medal in Rio in the doubles field. He then changed his field, then moved to the coxless pair, which experienced the Olympic victory in Tokyo last year, and returned to a boat with two oars that were completely invincible from 2014 to 2016.

The Croatian brothers hold a world record in the field of doubles when they exceeded 2000 meters in Amsterdam in 2014. Time of 5: 59.72 not exceeded so far.
