Spijtig nieuws bereikt ons uit het FISA hoofdkwartier. Geen enkel ticket voor Rio werd teruggegeven, waardoor Niels Van Zandweghe en Tim Brys in de lichte dubbeltwee geen aanspraak meer kunnen maken om deel te nemen aan de Olympische Spelen in Rio.

"FISA confirm that all NOCs have responded and all 550 places are confirmed. That is to say that there are no more open quota. There was one place that was a question mark but it has been confirmed today that the injury to this rower is not as bad as anticipated and he will row in Rio. Again, we are really sorry for Tim and Niels, but this is the situation now."
