POZNAN, Poland - Another Husky heads to the finals after day three of the 2009 FISA World Rowing Championships.

In what was an extremely close race, Husky alumni Brett Newlin and Giuseppe Lanzone eked out a fourth place finish in the straight four repechage for team USA. Just eight-tenths of a second separated first through fourth places in the rep and team USA missed the A/B semifinal by five one-hundredths of a second.
