Rowing

Rowing

Rowing is a sport in which athlete’s race against each other on water.

The boats are propelled by the reaction forces on the oar/paddle blades as they are pushed against the water. While rowing, the athlete sits in the boat facing backwards and uses the oars which are held in place by the oarlocks to propel the boat forward.

It is a demanding sport requiring strong core balance as well as physical strength and cardiovascular endurance. There are many different types of rowing for competition.

These include endurance races, time trials, stake racing, bumps racing, and the side-by-side format.

The most typical types are sweep or sweep-oar rowing. This is when each rower has one oar, held with both hands.

This can be done in pairs, fours and eights. Or sculling where each rower has two oars, one in each hand. Sculling is usually done in quads, doubles or singles.

Rowing was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1982.

List of disciplines

  • Rowing

Rowing is known for legendary displays of strength and stamina. The first Rowing races took place on the River Thames in Shakespeare’s time, when Londoners bet on the ferries crossing between the banks. The sport developed its modern form during the 19th century, after universities adopted it as a competitive event. So began a tradition that remains to this day with the annual Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge university students.
