Dit is de verklaring van World Rowing van zojuist: The NED M4- (NED1) and NED M8+ had an ill rower in each crew this morning so both crews are now isolated and undergoing PCR testing under the guidance and protocol of the local health authorities.
If the rowers in question are tested negative and cleared by the local authorities later today, the Executive Committee has decided, in this exceptional period and without creating a precedent, to allow NED1 to progress directly to the Repechage round tomorrow, and not race the heat. The NED M8+ would not race in the optional Test Race this afternoon.
If a positive result is returned, the crews will be withdrawn and remain isolated.
