Bouke had a very even stroke rate throughout his race and pulled in a classic negative split 2k - where you race at a much faster pace in the first split, maintain an easier pace for the second and third splits, then up the stroke rate again in the last 500 metres. An excellent race Bouke - just shows you why he received a 6th place position out of 23 competitors.
Caroline - Unlike my BIRC 2k where my stroke rate was pretty even throughout the whole 2k - yesterday's race was all over the place! I started too fast and then started to blow up - hence the 400 metres panic pull (or is that just a computer blip?) in the final stages of the race. All I can take from this race is aside from achieving my best ever time I need to focus on a more even race to avoid the last minute wobbles.
