Bronze medal to Finnish Rower

The Finnish rower Joel Naukkarinen won a bronze medal in the mens open 2000 meter class at the World Rowing Indoor Championship which took place from 25-26 February 2022.

The open men’s 2000m was one of the highlight events and the race saw last year’s indoor
champion Ward Lemmelijn of Belgium come out on top again. Lemmelijn trailed Russia’s
Alexander Vyazovkin for the majority of the race, and in an epic sprint to the line overtook
him just before the finish, to the delight of his supporters in Belgium. He fell just short of the
magic sub 5:40 mark when he finished in a time of 5:41.7, ahead of Vyazovkin with Joel
Naukkarinen of Finland in third. Congratulation to Joel Naukkarinen.
