The stand on the left is for competing teams - the other end of it was full. The screen on the left shows a list of competitors and their lanes at the start, then shows split times as the race progresses; with a fast shutter speed only part of each line is shown. Canada in lane 5 is leading Cuba in lane 8. Nearest boat in the following group is Dr Tim Brabants of Team GB, with Serbia and Bulgaria. Behind them is Italy. Russian and Cook Islands boats are further back, out of this photo. The big TV screen is showing the picture from a camera on the car on the far bank on the far left of this photo, so it includes the well filled spectator stand. At other times it cuts to pictures from static cameras, the following boat, or the zip wire above the course.
