Rowing ace Anja Manoutschehri and Twin City Liner
Anja’s season prospects 2017
For next season rowing ace Anja Manoutschehri
with her ultra-fast boat Twin City Liner
has a lot of targets. The 21 year old Viennese seeks further improvement as well as competing in national and international championships and her long-term goal is to take part in the 2020 Summer Olympics.
The kick-off for the new regatta season will take place in Zagreb
on April 8th and 9th. Zagreb is not only host of the annual Crotian-Open
, but also of the EUSA-Games. In this student championship Anja became European champion in 2016, she really likes the rowing track in Zagreb.
In April she will whether attend the regatta in Klagenfurt-Woerthersee or
the german „Kleinboottest
“. In Klagenfurt the Austrian elite is waiting as in Germany it will be a tight match with international competitors in the Lightweight Women’s Single Sculls.
The first world cup of the coming season will take place in Belgrade
from May 5th to May 7th, again with a strong field of international competitors.
She will defenitely compete at a regatta in Ottensheim
, a time trial and qualification race from May 27th to May 28th as well as the world cup race in Poznan
(Poland) from June 15th to June 18th.
There she could win the silver medal last year, so „there is still room above“, Anja said recently in one of her interviews.
From June 23rd to June 25th there will be the final qualification within the scope of time trial and qualification races in Vienna. A „home match“ for Anja and hopefully she will qualify for the Austrian National Rowing Team.
Her biggest goal is to participate in the U 23 World Championship in Plovdiv
(Bulgaria) which will take place from July 19th to July 23rd. If she can make it to the FISA (the World Rowing Federation) World Championship in Sarasota (Florida), held from September 24th to October 1st, the results during this year will show.
The end of the season is traditionally the Austrian Championship, taking place in Vienna
from October 13th to October 15th.
Thanks to Anja Twin City Liner will be strongly spotted at international sporting events.
We from the Twin City Liner wish her all the best for the coming season.
