rowing and water bottles

On Saturday I watched Estonia win the silver in the Double Sculls Men (rowing) on NBC.

1. Australia David Crawshay/Scott Brennan 6:27.77
2. Estonia Tonu Endrekson/Juri Jaanson 6:29.05
3. Great Britain Matthew Wells/Stephen Rowbotham 6:29.10

Estonia won silver by 1/20 second in a 6.5 minute race! They were going back and forth with the UK for the second half of the race. Australia had the lead all along. I noticed one of the Australian rowers emptied his water bottle before the race. That must’ve been their secret trick. If only Estonia had emptied their water bottles before the race.
