Due to a bad-looking forecast with unrowable and unfair conditions for Monday 17 May, the World Rowing Executive Committee changed the racing schedule for the World Rowing Final Olympic Qualification Regatta, which was held on Rotsee, Lucerne, Switzerland, this weekend.

The finals were moved from Monday to today, with both semi-finals and finals being raced today.

Here are the results from today’s finals, where the two top spots in each race gave the rowers tickets to the Olympic rowing in Tokyo in July.
