Jaime just missed out on a gold medal in her single. She finished second. But for the second day in a row, a bad start hurt a Traynor rower.
Just like yesterday, when a bad start put Kelly in a deep hole from the beginning, Jaime says she had one of her worst starts ever today. By the time she recovered, she was down a couple of boat lengths and although the rest of race went really well...
What is this? A new Traynor curse at the Henley? I certainly hope not, since there are still races to be rowed. Both girls still have their eights left.
In Jaime's second final, with her partner Lauren Chewter, their double didn't have quite enough horses to catch a gold medal. They ended up getting edged out of third place at the finish, in a race that Jaime said was not one of their strongest efforts. Once again, big sigh.
But while Henley gold wasn't in the cards today, I couldn't be prouder of the way that Jaime rowed. My throat is still hurting from all the lumps it's had in it today and my eyes are watering just remembering the races. It's definitely worth all the effort. Congratulations to her.
So tomorrow, the eights begin. Kelly rows her first heat in the morning and she's looking to advance to the semis. Jaime has a straight final on Saturday afternoon.
Here's the updated schedule and of course, you can watch the results live at the Henley website.
