The Canadian Women's National Rowing Team had three crews, all of whom made finals, competing in the first World Cup of the season. The regatta was held on the Penrith course in Sydney, Australia and wrapped up on March 30, 2014. The newly formed crew of Natalie Mastracci from Thorold, Ontario and Susanne Grainger from London, Ontario won bronze in the Women's Pair. They were followed by fellow Canadians, Christine Roper and Ashley Brzozowicz, in fourth place. In Women's Doubles, Carling Zeeman of Cambridge, Ontario and Antje von Seydlitz-Kurzbach of Smithers, BC were fifth. On the men's team, Brian Price, Canada's much decorated coxswain for the Men's Eight, has just announced his retirement. During his time on the National Team from 2001 to 2012, Brian coxed his crew to gold medals at the Olympics in Beijing in 2008 and to silver at the London Olympics in 2012. In all Brian has been a three-time Olympian and a three-time World Champion in 2002, 2003, and 2007. He now juggles working with the RBC Olympians program, public speaking, and working on a book. He lives in Orangeville with his wife and children.
