ETON, England - All 15 University of Washington athletes are still in medal contention after four days of racing at the World Rowing Championships on Dorney Lake. The finals are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.

The contingent of 15 current and former UW athletes is believed to be the school's largest for the annual international regatta.

Nine crews feature current or former Huskies, including six United States' entries, two boats from Canada and the men's double scull from Croatia that includes Ante Kusurin.

Five of those crews, featuring 10 UW athletes, have already secured grand final berths. The U.S. men's eight with Matt Deakin, won its Monday heat and rows for the gold medal Sunday. Another former Husky, Peter Dembicki, hopes to lead Canada's eight through Thursday's repechage and into the final.

The U.S. women's eight won its heat Monday and rows Sunday for the world championship. Coxswain Mary Whipple and rower Anna Mickelson are members of the American eight.

Mickelson is competing in two events. She will row Saturday in the grand final of the women's pairs after winning a repechage on Tuesday.

With only six entries, the men's four with coxswain is a final-only event that does not require heats. However, the boats raced Wednesday to establish lane assignments for Sunday's grand final. The U.S. crew, that includes Huskies Kyle Larson, Scott Gault and Brodie Buckland, led the race through the 1,000-meter mark before coming home in fourth place with a time of 6:22.56. Great Britain won the race with a time of 6:19.87.

A Canadian crew comprised predominantly of Huskies, finished second. That boat includes Max Lang, Chris Aylard, Rob Gibson and Will Crothers. They teamed up earlier this summer in Belgium to lead Canada's eight to a gold medal at the under-23 world championships.
