    Background: IN HOLLAND TODAY (SUNDAY), THE EIGHTS FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN ROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN AMSTERDAM WAS WON BY GERMANY'S RATZEBURG CREW, THE PRESENT WORLD CHAMPIONS.

    THEY WON THE FINAL IN A TREMENDOUS RACE WITH THE ZJALTHIRIS VILJNJUS (PRON Z-ARL-TEER-IS VEEL-NEE-OOS) CLUB TEAM FROM LITHUANIA, REPRESENTING THE SOVIET UNION.

    THE TWO POWERFUL CREWS, WHO HAD NEVER PREVIOUSLY MET, TOOK THE LEAD IN TURNS THROUGHOUT THE TWO-THOUSAND METRE COURSE.

    WATCHED BY TWELVE-THOUSAND SPECTATORS, THE GERMAN CREW FOUND THE ENERGY TO SLIP ACROSS THE FINISHING LINE THIRTY-FOUR HUNDREDTHS OF A SECOND AHEAD OF THE SOVIET CREW.

    THE TIME OF THE GERMAN CREW FOR THE COURSE WAS 5 MINUTES 50-POINT-62 SECONDS.

    GERMANY AND THE SOVIET UNION DOMINATED THE PROGRAMME, EACH WINNING THREE FINALS. THE OTHER TITLE WENT TO HOLLAND, WHOSE AMSTERDAM NEREUS OARSMEN WON THE COXLESS PAIRS IN 6 MINUTES-42 POINT-55 SECONDS.

    THE COXED FOURS FINAL WAS WON BY THE SOVIET CREW, VODNIK MOSCOW, IN 6-MINUTES-14-POINT-41 SECONDS, LEADING THE GERMAN CREW BY 15-POINT-20 SECONDS.

    THE COXED PAIRS WAS WON BY GERMANY'S VORWAERTS, TOSTOCK CREW IN 7-MINUTES-12-POINT-57-SECONDS. THE SOVIET PAIR CAME SECOND WITH A TIME OF 7-MINUTES-18-POINT-90 SECONDS.

    VIACHESLAV IVANOV, OF THE SOVIET UNION, WHO WON THE 1956 AND 1960 OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALS, REGAINED THE SINGLE SCULLS TITLE HE WON LAST YEAR. IVANOV SPURTED HOME IN 7-MINUTES-FIVE-POINT-19-SECONDS.

    THERE WAS A SURPRISE-FINISH TO THE COXLESS FOURS WHEN GERMANIA, DUSSELDORF, WON AFTER TRAILING DENMARK BY HALF A LENGTH 20 METRES FROM THE FINISH.

    SUDDENLY THE DANES GOT INTO DIFFICULTIES AND THE GERMANS PASSED THEM TO WIN IN 6-MINUTES-15-POINT-10 SECONDS. DENMARK FINISHED SECOND WITH 6-MINUTES-19-90 SECONDS.
