Zagreb, November 23, 2019 -World and European champions in Coxless Pairs, Martin and Valent Sinković, were declared the best male rowing crew of 2019 in the selection of the International Rowing Federation (FISA). They were presented the recognition at the FISA Gala in London. The Croatian rowers received the same recognition – as Double Sculls - in 2016 after winning the gold medal at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. We recall, their coach Nikola Bralić was also a laureate of the FISA's election - in 2015 he was voted the World's Best Rowing Coach.
The exceptionally successful season of Sinković brothers was crowned by winning gold medals at the European Championships in Luzern and at the World Championships in Linz that also brought them the Olympic standard for Tokyo Olympics where they will defend - in their new discipline - the Olympic Gold from Rio de Janeiro.
