The RA web site reported that:
In the seven junior finals, Australia finished with two gold and a bronze medal. Rowing Australia (men's) head coach Noel Donaldson says it was a creditable performance. "We're probably one medal away from doing cartwheels. My theory is that you want to get a fifty per cent return from the finals you contest and we were close to that today. It was a fine effort to qualify the seven crews for the A finals. I think the juniors deserve a lot of praise for their efforts and the way they have conducted themselves. They've been very professional in everything they've done. It's been a good regatta for Australia".

The RA web site reported:
Sally Kehoe's win in the single scull (JW1x) was not as straightforward. The Romanian sculler darted out of the start and put a big gap between her and the rest of the field by the 1000 metre mark. At that stage, Sally Kehoe was in third place with the Greek sculler in second place. In the last five hundred metres the Romanian sculler started to fade and was reeled in by Kehoe, three strokes from the finish line. The perfectly judged race was a credit to Kehoe who raced four times in four days.

As silver medallists in the junior women's pair (JW2-) in 2003, Bale and Naughton went one better this year and were never troubled. They started strongly and quickly put a gap in the field. Once they were in that position they were never headed, rowing long and flat in the warm conditions. They finished three seconds ahead of the second placed boat. Bale and Naughton have ended their brilliant junior rowing careers with gold and silver medals at World Chamionships.
