The second time was the charm for Margot Shumway.
The race was very close. Shumway and Trowbridge finished the race in 7:10.37, just over a second ahead of the Czech Republic team of Lenka and Jitka Antosova in 7:11.68.
That tiny bit of time made the difference between going to the finals, or not. Only the top two finishers advanced.
Shumway and Trowbridge finished less than one second behind the winners, Min Wang and Weiwei Zhu of China, who finished in 7:09.65.
The finals are Friday, August 3, at Eton Dorney.
