The M2x record of the University of Zagreb (6:51.20) got no rest: Poznan University of Life Sciences (POL) broke it in the first heat, Vienna was even faster in the second heat. In the repechages the University of Amsterdam sharpened the record with four seconds, but in the final Poznan University of Life Sciences finally turned it down to 6:30.97.
