TOKYO/OLD LYME — After experiencing a year’s delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tokyo is now bracing for the arrival of a Typhoon Nepartak. As a result, all rowing events scheduled for Tuesday, July 27, have been postponed to Wednesday and Thursday.

The Men’s 8+ repechage — in which the US boat that includes team members Austin Hack and Liam Corrigan from Old Lyme will participate — was already scheduled for Wednesday, but its time has been changed. It will now be rowed at 12:50 p.m. Tokyo time, which is 11:50 p.m. EST on Tuesday, July 27.

Five boats will be in the Men’s 8+ repechage — Australia, Great Britain, New Zealand, and Romania will join the US.

The first four boats in the repachage will then join Germany and The Netherlands in the final. Germany and The Netherlands qualified directly for the final by winning their respective heats.
