Caught on 360 Degree Camera: An Emotional Moment in the USA W8+
Source: Sports Illustrated
360 degree video taken on board the USA W8+ as they train for Rio.
Point the camera at cox Katelin Snyder and stroke seat Amanda Elmore at 1m15s to see the priceless reaction when cox Katelin receives news via text message that her fiancé Nareg Guregian has just won the US National Selection Regatta in the pair.
Katelin, already selected to compete at Rio in the W8+, was training with her crew just 15 minutes away from where the selection regatta was taking place.
Having narrowly missed selection for the USA M8+, the unexpected win for Nareg means he will be going to Rio after all. He will represent USA in the M2-.
Rio will be the first Olympic Games for both Katelin and Nareg.
