Nine rowers, 2,000 grueling yards, and one chance for glory
Tall, naturally talented, and the offspring of Olympians, superstar siblings Leni and Cristian Popescu are set to row Harley Grammar to victory in the annual Head of the River race.

As the final moments tick down to the big race, will they make it to the start line or will they plummet from grace?
