on the third day of being in Prague a sickness struck our team. approximately 7 rowers out of the 20 plus my coach were faced with a vomiting bug (I was lucky enough to dodge it). This lasted 24 hours but the athletes had to give another 24 hours to recover. once the one crew member of my boat had overcome his illness we got stuck back into training, working on the little things in preparation for the champs. we were forced to train without our coach for around 2 days as he was too ill but we soon got back into our normal routine by around the Friday/saturday of being in Prague ( we arrived on a Monday).
