7 years. My last medal in a quadruple scull was also in bronze and it was in Beijing at the Olympic Games. But my last international medal was 3 years ago in double scull. Once more...a bronze medal. It feels like I am back where I left things. But let's go back 3 days ago.

It has been a week that we arrived in Italy. The 9 hours jetlag was not too bad to deal with despite a tough training program. We have kept the rhythm with 2 to 3 sessions per day. World Cup 2 is part of a process not our goal number 1. Nevertheless, it feels good to be back on a racing course, to get that adrenaline flow while rowing down the course.
So I am back in the quad. Last time was Beijing 2008. But first of all, I would like to introduce my crewmates. 4 seats but 5 guys. Injury is a risk (as I found out!) so it is not a bad thing to switch and know how to row in any situation.
