Malta entered three boats in the 2013 US World Championship Team trials. Chris Lambert and Sam Cunningham in the LM 1x and a LM4x of Andy Quinn (Undine), Collin Ethridge, David Smith, Shane Madden.
For the Quad the first race was a race for lanes with a Craftsbury and Riverside quad. The A final race was executed to plan, a fast start by the Riverside quad put Malta down 3 and 1/2 seats through the first 1000m. Patience and persistance guided the men to still to the race plan set by coach Chris McElroy. Over the next 500m Malta closed the gap between themselves and the Riverside quad. With 300m left in the race the Malta boat moved into winning position. Malta was able to hold on to the finish with a Malta victory. They have accepted the entry to the 2013 World Championships in Soul Korea.
The Two singles that raced at trials in the LM 1x were able to both make the A final. As the singles duked it out down the course Chris Lambert placed 3rd and Sam Cunningham placed 4th.
Well Done Malta!!!!
