Scandal alert!

The secret is out.

From our undercover agent.

Molly discovered with covert race-winning weapon?
A reliable witness has reported that under the smoke-screen of the VW debacle, Molly was observed on her home waters blatantly testing a cheat device.

It appears that (poorly hidden) equipment delivers extra power when required to boost the rowers' efforts.
Molly was discovered achieving 3 knots (SOG) against the stream without resorting to any other form of propulsion.
