Rowing is a sport in whichathletes race against each otheron rivers, on lakes or on theocean, depending upon the type ofrace and the discipline. The boatsare propelled by the reactionforces on the oar blades as theyare pushed against the water. Thesport can be both recreational,focusing on learning thetechniques required, andcompetitive where physical sizeand overall fitness plays a largerole. It is also one of theoldest Olympic sports. In theUnited States, high schooland College rowing is sometimesreferred to as crew.
Basic informationWhile rowing, the athlete sits in the boat facing backwards(towards the stern), and uses the oars which are held in placeby the oarlocks to propel the boat forward (towards the bow).This may be done on a river, lake, sea, or other large body ofwater. The sport requires strong core balance as well asphysical strength and cardiovascular endurance. There are many different types of competition. These includeendurance races, time trials, stake racing, bumps racing, andthe side-by-side format used in theOlympic games. The manydifferent formats are a result of the long history of the sport, itsdevelopment in different regions of the world, and specificlocal requirements and restrictions.
There are two forms of rowing:In sweep or sweep-oar rowing, each rower has one oar, heldwith both hands. This is generally done in pairs, fours, andeights. Each rower in a sweep boat is referred to eitheras port orstarboard, depending on which side of the boat therowers oar extends to. The port side is referred to as strokeside, and the starboard side as bow side; this applies even ifthe stroke oarsman is rowing on bow side and/or the bowoarsman on stroke side.In sculling each rower has two oars (or sculls), one in eachhand. Sculling is usually done without a coxswain,in quads, doubles or singles. The oar in the scullers righthand extends to port (stroke side), and the oar in the left handextends to starboard (bow side).
How to rowThe two fundamental reference points in the rowing stroke arethe catch, immediately prior to the oar blades placement in thewater, and the extraction (also known as the finish or therelease) where the rower removes the oar blade from thewater. From the catch, the rower places the blade in the water,then applies pressure to the oar by simultaneously pushing theseat toward the bow of the boat by extending the legs. As thelegs approach full extension, the rower pivots his or her torsotoward the bow of the boat and then finally pulls the armstowards his or her chest.
