Just 0.068 seconds separated Lockett from a podium finish, and with her strength and improved tactical and strategic aspects of her racing, confidence is growing that a place on the podium may not be far away.
Today’s result sees Deanna Lockett climb to 6th overall in the World Cup standings.
Pierre Boda was in action in the Men’s 500 metre Repechage heats and progressed through to the Repechage Semi Finals where he finished 4th, just missing out on a Quarter Final spot.
Coach Anthony Barthell was pleased with Pierre’s performance and improvement in controlling races and utilising the track more.
In the Men’s 1500 metres, both Nate Henry and Armstrong Lazenby just failed to progress from the Repechage heats, finishing 3rd in each of their heats.
The World Cup event wraps up in Shanghai on Sunday.
