Before we move on to the European Championships, let’s briefly explain what rowing means. there different boats Each propelled by a different number of rowers. For example, there are variations where the helmsman is on the plane and not present. By the way, if he was sailing, he wouldn’t have to row. The helmsman must make sure that the boat stays on course and that the rowers keep sailing straight. They have their backs to the finish line, which makes good training and management crucial. The rowers push the boat forward through belts moving in the water. The number of these varies from one to a total of two per rower.

Rowing can no longer be ignored Olympic sports. After the first edition, it became a regular part of the men’s program and later, from 1976, also for the women. The United States has so far been the most successful at the Olympics. With 33 gold, 32 silver and 24 bronze medals they are far at the top of the medal table. Nor is the Netherlands’ performance too bad, as “we” are 12th out of a total of 43 winners with 36 medals.

Rowing technique

Whoever thinks kayaking is an easy sport is deeply mistaken. With discipline comes one Hope Technique to look. Rowers, for example, sit with their backs to the direction of movement, so they can apply extra force with their legs, back, and arms. However, it is important for the boat to pass as straight as possible through the water to maintain speed, while the athletes do not see exactly which way they are going. It is also important to stay at the same pace as the rest, so as not to lose strength. Technique consists of 5 parts: stroke, pressure, body preparation, acceleration, and variation stroke. Especially with so many rowers on board, it’s important to coordinate strength and timing, so that you’re sailing like a true team.
