The Olympic tandem of Lindsay Jennerich and Patricia Obee are coming into form, having recently won bronze at the Lucerne World Cup. The duo will be aiming for a return to the world championship podium, having won silver in 2011, but will be challenged by crews from Great Britain, Australia and Italy.
