David Šain, Martin Sinković, Damir Martin (on the photo) and Valent Sinković representing Croatia are continuing with amazing results in quadruple sculls rowing. At the 2013 World Championship held in Korea, Croatia won the first place, Germany the second (last year's Olympic champions in London, Croatia was  second then), and Great Britain the third. Croatia won the title of world champions for the second time (2011 and 2013), and is at the same time the tripple world cup champion (2010, 2011, 2-013), which is an unbeleivable achievement besides such countries like Germany, Great Britain, Rusia, USA, etc..
