There is little time for reflection for Guiseley’s Debbie Flood.

The two-time Olympic silver medallist has gone straight from last weekend’s Henley Royal Regatta to the third and last World Cup meet of the season in Lucerne.

“This is the business end of the World Cup season”, says David Tanner, GB Rowing’s Performance Director.

“We know that more, strong crews will be coming in from countries like Canada, among others.”

And the Swiss Rotsee stretch of water could witness more of the same tight racing which was a feature of the Munich leg of the World Cup.

Leander Club member Flood, 30, will be involved this weekend as a single sculler.

The Guiseley woman, who only returned to full-time training in April after a year with the Prison Service, finished ninth in the opening World Cup meet of the season in Bled, Slovenia.

At Henley, Flood was up against world bronze medallist Mirka Knapkova of the Czech Republic, and described the race as “emotional” as the Eastern European defeated her with ease in her semi-final.

“It was always going to be hard,” said Flood. “I’ve come back after a year and have been building up my fitness. It was a really emotional event and you could hear my name being called all the way down the course.

“It’s such a special regatta and I love racing here in front of a home crowd.”

The women’s single sculls attracted a large entry, including holder Emma Twigg from New Zealand.

There were also entries from the United States and Canada.

Flood added that she would recompose herself before competing at Lucerne.
