Three of the four favored scullers, Václav Chalupa, Jüri Jaanson and Olaf Tufte, all qualify relatively easily for the finals from Semis A, B and C, respectively. But in a major surprise, Marcel Hacker, who is in Semi B with Tufte, finishes third and fails to qualify. Hacker is the returning Bronze medalist, a former World Champion, and holder of the World's best time. Ivo Yanakiev, who finishes second in Semi B, goes on to win a Bronze medal.
